About Gregory "Gloria" Hemingway

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gloria_Hemingway

Gregory "Gloria" Hemingway (born Gregory Hancock Hemingway), was the third and youngest child of famed author Ernest Hemingway, the second by his second wife Pauline Pfeiffer.

For years Hemingway had experienced gender dysphoria and eventually had sex reassignment surgery. She was due to appear in court on the day she died, facing charges of indecent exposure and resisting arrest without violence.

Hemingway was a doctor, but the authorities in Montana chose not to renew her medical license in 1988 because of her ongoing alcoholism. She had also battled bipolar disorder and drug abuse for many years.

Hemingway was married four times. Her last marriage, to Ida, ended in divorce in 1995 after three years. She underwent a sex change procedure that same year and, in a 1997 ceremony in Washington, they remarried. Upon her death the legitimacy of the marriage was called into question. Her $7,000,000 estate was left to widow Ida, but her children challenged the inheritance, claiming that Ida could not be a widow as the marriage was not legal (Hemingway's home state of Florida does not recognize same-sex marriages). The parties eventually reached an undisclosed settlement.

Before the sex reassignment surgery, Hemingway fathered eight children: Patrick, Edward, Sean, Brendan, Vanessa, Maria, John, and Lorian.

Hemingway wrote an account of her father's life and the strained relationship they had. Entitled Papa: A Personal Memoir it was published in 1976 with a preface by Norman Mailer and detailed the cause of the bad feelings and years of estrangement. Daughter Lorian Hemingway went on to write about her father in the 1999 book Walk on Water: A Memoir. Gloria's son John Hemingway is the author of the critically acclaimed memoir Strange Tribe: A Family Memoir. In 2005 Valerie Hemingway, who marrying--and later divorcing--Gregory, Ernest's youngest son and was also Ernest Hemingway's secretary, published her memoir Running with the Bulls: My Years with the Hemingways. Son Edward, an artist, published his first illustrated children's book "Bump in the Night" in 2008. -------------------- Son of Ernest Hemingway. A former doctor who wrote a well-received book about his father,"Papa:A Personal Memior".Survivor by his daughter Lorian Hemingway,wrote a 1998 memoir,"Walk on Water,"in which she said her father lost his medical license because of an addiction.
