CARRYING THE TORCH: MAUD HOWE ELLIOTT AND THE AMERICAN RENAISSANCE. Nancy Whipple Grinnell. University Press of New England, Lebanon, 2014. Published in association with Newport Art Museum. 222 pp. with 37 ills. (22 col.). 24 x 16 cm. LC 2013-22397 ISBN 9781611684957 In English.
Publisher's description: Maud Howe Elliott (1854-1948), daughter of Julia Ward Howe, was a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and a tireless supporter of the arts, particularly in her adopted city of Newport, Rhode Island. Elliott was an art historian and author of over twenty works of fiction and nonfiction, as well as countless articles and short stories. Perhaps best known for co-writing a biography of her mother -- a major figure in the political and cultural world of New England, a women's suffrage leader, and a leading progressive political voice -- the culmination of Elliott's own life's work was the 1912 founding of the Art Association of Newport (now the Newport Art Museum), in which she sought to enhance community and regional life.
