Named after Ernest’s mother, Grace Hemingway, born in Chicago in 1872. Her father worked in a wholesale cutlery business, and her mother encouraged Grace’s interest in music, arranging for her to take violin, piano and voice lessons. When Grace was a teenager, the family moved to Oak Park where she met Clarence “Ed” Hemingway. They struck up a friendship, and Ed, who was studying medicine, was interested in marriage. But Grace was not ready to give up on her musical career. She traveled to New York to study voice and audition at the Metropolitan Opera. But work never materialized and Grace returned to Oak Park to marry her boy next door, Ed. The couple had six children – Ernest was the second born. They spent summers in Michigan, and Grace, when not occupied with the children, spent time planning for a lavish 8-bedroom “dream” home.
