About Lesley Frost Ballantine (1899-1983)

Lesley Frost Ballantine, or Lesley Frost, as she always liked to be known, was the
second child of Robert and Elinor Frost. She was born in Lawrence, Massachusetts on
April 28, 1899. The Frosts moved to a farm in Derry, New Hampshire in the fall of
1900 when she was sixteen months old, and her early childhood there is documented in
New Hampshire’s Child: The Derry Journals of Lesley Frost
(1969). She attended Wellesley College in 1917, but left after one year, finding
college life regimented and pointless, and did wartime work in an airplane factory
instead. She later briefly attended Barnard College and the University of Michigan,
but again did not adjust well to academic life. By the spring of 1924 she was
managing a bookstore, The Open Book, in Pittsfield, Massachusetts with her sister
Marjorie. There she met, and in 1928 married, James Dwight Francis, son of a wealthy
industrialist, but the marriage lasted only a few years. The couple had two
daughters, Elinor, born in 1929, and Lesley Lee, born in June of 1931.

In the 1930s Lesley Frost taught at Rockford College in Illinois and at the
King-Smith Studio for Girls in Washington, D.C. From 1945 to 1947 she was cultural
officer and director of the United States Information Library in Madrid (“Casa
Americana”), operated by the Office of War Information. The Library later became the
American Library in Madrid with Frost in charge. She was the first woman sent to
Latin America by the State Department to lecture on American literature (1948). In
1967 she founded La Escuela de la Tahona, a summer language school, in La Granja,
near Madrid, where she had a home. In 1952 she married Dr. Joseph W. Ballantine,
head of the State Department’s Far Eastern Division under Secretary of State Cordell
Hull. Ballantine died in 1973.

Lesley Frost gained an international reputation for her correspondence with her
father’s friends and for her articles and lectures on his work. She also wrote
several children’s books, including Really Not Really
and Digging Down to China, a novel, Murder At Large, and a book of poems Going On Two. She served as the first
chairman of the Robert Frost Foundation and oversaw the restoration of the Frost farm in Derry, New Hampshire.

Lesley Frost died July 9, 1983 in Fairfield, Connecticut aged 84.

    I wish to write articles based on the information collected through some copyright books. I won’t copy – paste the material but edit or modify it in such a way that the meaning remains the same. I would also give credit to the books and their authors. Am I breaking any copyright laws?.

    Hi Christine.

    As long as you are quoting or paraphrasing and giving due credit to the author(s), then the use of information from published works in your own articles is not infringing on any copyright law. There are restrictions about how much you can justifiably quote from any given work – see the Fair Use provisions of the U.S. Copyright statute (17 U.S.C.
