    Born in Walker, Min­nesota, Welsh was a daugh­ter of a lum­ber­man. In 1938, she mar­ried Lawrence Miller Cook, a drama stu­dent from Ohio. Their life to­gether was short and they soon sep­a­rated. After the sep­a­ra­tion, Mary moved to Chicago and began work­ing at the Chicago Daily News, where she met Will Lang Jr.. The two formed a fast friend­ship and worked to­gether on sev­eral as­sign­ments. A ca­reer move pre­sented it­self dur­ing a va­ca­tion trip to Lon­don, when Mary started a new job at the Lon­don Daily Ex­press. The po­si­tion soon brought her as­sign­ments in Paris dur­ing the years pre­ced­ing World War II.

    After the fall of France in 1940, Welsh re­turned to Lon­don as a base to cover the events of the War. She also at­tended and re­ported on the press con­fer­ences of Win­ston Churchill. It was dur­ing the war years that she mar­ried her sec­ond hus­band, Aus­tralian jour­nal­ist Noel Monks.

    In 1944, Welsh met Amer­i­can au­thor Ernest Hem­ing­way while cov­er­ing the war in Lon­don, and they be­came in­ti­mate. In 1945, she di­vorced Noel Monks, and in March 1946, she mar­ried Hem­ing­way in a cer­e­mony in Cuba. In Au­gust 1946, Welsh had a mis­car­riage due to an ec­topic preg­nancy.[citation needed] After their wed­ding, Mary lived with Hem­ing­way in Cuba for many years and, after 1959, in Ketchum, Idaho. In 1958, while still in Cuba, she ap­peared in a non-speak­ing role, along with her hus­band, in cameo ap­pear­ances made by them in John Sturges's film ver­sion of Hem­ing­way's 1952 novella, The Old Man and the Sea. Hem­ing­way por­trayed a gam­bler in the film, and Mary an Amer­i­can tourist. It was after they had moved to Ketchum, in the early morn­ing hours of July 2, 1961, that Mary was awak­ened by a loud noise, and dis­cov­ered that her hus­band had "quite de­lib­er­ately" shot him­self with his fa­vorite shotgun. Ac­cord­ing to bi­og­ra­pher James Mel­low...

    Fol­low­ing Hem­ing­way's sui­cide in 1961, Mary acted as his lit­er­ary ex­ecu­tor, and was re­spon­si­ble for the pub­li­ca­tion of A Move­able Feast, Is­lands in the Stream, The Gar­den of Eden, and other posthu­mous works. She gave the man­u­script of A Move­able Feast to Ta­tiana Ku­dri­avt­seva, a trans­la­tor from the So­viet Union, who was able then to pub­lish a Russ­ian trans­la­tion si­mul­ta­ne­ous with the orig­i­nal's pub­li­ca­tion in English. In 1976, she wrote her au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, How It Was. Fur­ther bi­o­graph­i­cal de­tails of Mary Welsh Hem­ing­way can be found in the nu­mer­ous Hem­ing­way bi­ogra­phies, and in Ber­nice Kert's The Hem­ing­way Women. In her later years, Mary moved to New York City, where she lived in an apart­ment on 65th Street. After a pro­longed ill­ness, she died in St. Luke’s Hos­pi­tal at age 78, on No­vem­ber 26, 1986. In her will, she had stip­u­lated that she be buried in Ketchumnext to Hem­ing­way, where they are now in­terred toget...
