    MOTHER OF ACTOR MONTGOMERY CLIFT

    Ethel Anderson was the illegitimate daughter of Woodbury Blair and Maria Anderson. She was adopted by the Fogg family.

    "He [Montgomery Clift} was born in Omaha, Nebraska, on October 17, 1920, soon after his twin sister Roberta - later named Ethel. Their older brother was Brooks, their father William Brooks Clift, a banker with Southern roots, and their mother Ethel Fogg Clift, known to everyone as Sunny. And it was she who would have the dominant impact on Monty's life. She had been adopted as a baby, the illegitimate child of two members of leading American families and it was only as a teenager that she discovered her father was Woodbury Blair - the son of Montgomery Blair, postmaster general in Lincoln's cabinet. Her mother was Maria Anderson, daughter of Colonel Robert Anderson who led Union forces in the Civil War. Soon after her birth she was handed to family friend Dr Edward Montgomery before being adopted by the Foggs. She would spend much of her life trying to be recognised by the families as their offspring." --The Montgomery Clift Shrine
