New York City
Hopper was born in upper Nyack, New York, a yacht-building center north of New York City, one of two children of a comfortably well-off, middle-class family. His parents, mostly of Dutch ancestry, were Garret Henry Hopper, a dry-goods merchant, and his wife Elizabeth Griffiths Smith.
Though not as successful as his forebears, Garrett provided well for his two children with considerable help from his wife’s inheritance, and he retired at age forty-nine. Edward and his only sibling Marion attended both private and public schools, and were raised in a strict Baptist home. Owing in part to his father’s mild nature, the household was dominated by women—his mother, grandmother, sister, and maid.
