May Sarton was born on May 3, 1912 in Wondelgem, Belgium. She attended grade school in Cambridge, Massachusetts and the Institut Belge de Culture Francaise in Brussels from 1924-1925. Instead of going to college, Ms. Sarton opted to join Eva Le Gallienne's Civic Repertory Theater Company in New York City as an apprentice in the hopes of becoming an actress. In 1934, she founded the Associated Actor's Theater in Hartford, Connecticut.
