Annie Adams Fields (1834-1915), a native Bostonian, was an accomplished author and social reformer. Following her marriage in 1854 to James Thomas Fields (Young America cat. no. 155), she established the Charles Street literary salon, which attracted Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry James, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and many others. Fields was an author herself, publishing volumes of verse and biographies of Whittier (1893) and Harriet Beecher Stowe (1897). In addition to her literary work, she founded many charities and devoted herself to the abolitionist and women's suffrage movements. Following the death of her husband in 1881, she entered into a long-term relationship with novelist Sarah Orne Jewett.
