Louise was born in Savannah, but she was raised in Massachusetts, where she graduated from Radcliffe College and Harvard Law School. The Flannery O’Connor – Andalusia Foundation was established by Margaret Florencourt Mann and Louise Florencourt, the co-executors of the estate of Regina Cline O’Connor (Flannery’s mother) and the co-trustees of the Mary Flannery O’Connor Charitable Trust (the primary beneficiary of Mrs. O’Connor’s estate). Mrs. Mann and Miss Florencourt served as the inaugural directors of the Foundation.
