Daughter of Quaker minister David Brainard Updegraff & Eliza Jane Mitchell, Grace went by her middle name to distinguish herself from her mother. A singer, piano player and composer, she collaborated with Kelso Carter in the 1890’s. In 1906, she married Reformed Church minister John Tallmadge Bergen in Madison, Wisconsin; he died in 1948. After her death in 1964, her daughter and husband set up a scholarship in her memory at Lake Forest College, Chicago, Illinois.
