OLIVER, Grace Atkinson, author, born in Boston, Massachusetts, 24 September, 1844. Her maiden name was Little. She was educated in private schools in Boston, and married in 1869 a son of the Reverend George E. Ellis. Her husband died within two years, and in order to divert her mind she began to contribute to " Old and New," wrote editorial articles for the Boston "Advertiser," and book notices for various papers, and contributed, under the signature of her deceased husband, John Harvard Ellis, to the "Galaxy," the "Atlantic Monthly," and " Scribner's Monthly." Biographical sketches of Dora d'Istria and other persons were very favorably received. In 1879 she married Dr. Joseph Pearson Oliver. She has published in book-form " Life and Works of Anna L. Barbauld" (Boston, 1873); "Life of Maria Edgeworth," written with the aid of family papers and personal reminiscences that were afforded her by members of Miss Edgeworth's family when she visited England in 1874 (1882); "Memoirs of Ann and Jane Taylor, with Selections from their Works" (1883); and "Arthur Penrhyn Stanley, his Life, Work, and Teachings" (1885).
