Elisabeth Marbury (1856 - 1933), writer, publicist and producer, was a cultural and artistic pioneer even though she is perhaps less known outside a specialized audience. Born to a distinguished family, Elisabeth Marbury was educated largely by her father and developed a lifelong passion for literature. She would become among the first literary agents, before such a role even really existed and would represent writers such as Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw. A prolific author herself, she wrote treatises on morals and manners. Along with with her lifetime partner, Elsie de Wolfe (who herself virtually invented the role of interior decorator in the United States), she hosted her own salon which attracted leading cultural figures of the day. She also rendered heroic support to American and French troops in World War I. Our efforts pay homage to Elisabeth Marbury.
