Fonctions : In 1927, Mazo de la Roche's (1879-1961) novel Jalna won the $10,000 first prize in a competition sponsored by Atlantic Monthly, which provided her with recognition and success in the future. Mazo de la Roche is significant to Mississauga as she lived in Clarkson during the time she wrote her award winning novel, Jalna. Mazo lived in Trail Cottage, which was located on property that had originally belonged to the Benares Estate. Some people speculate the Benares House was Mazo's inspiration for the Whiteoaks of Jalna. Mazo was friends with the Harrises and had visited Benares. She was born in Newmarket as Mazo Louise Roche. She was the only child of Alberta and William Roche. Mazo died on 12 July 1961. See: C.J. Taylor, de la Roche, Mazo, Canadian Encyclopedia, 2000 Edition (Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1999), 639.
