Elizabeth Robins Pennell (1855 - 1936)
Elizabeth Robins Pennell was an American writer who, for most of her adult life, made her home in London. She was a columnist, biographer, cookbook collector, and art critic; in addition, she wrote travelogues, mainly of European cycling voyages, and memoirs centered on her London salon. Her biographies included the first in almost a century of the proto-feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, one of her uncle the folklorist Charles Godfrey Leland, and one of her friend the painter Whistler. In recent years, her art criticism has come under scrutiny, and her food criticism has been reprinted.
