Elizabeth Robins

a.k.a. C. E. Raimond *

Author Code: AERO

Born: Aug. 6, 1862 - Louisville, Kentucky

Died: May 8, 1952 - Brighton, England

With a limited education, Robins ran away from home to become an actress when she was eighteen. A bright and attractive girl, she soon became an accomplished actress. She married fellow actor George Richmond Parks in 1885, but Parks committed suicide in 1887. She moved to London in 1888 and had a very successful career in London's West End. She began to write and published her first work George Mandeville's Husband in 1894 using the pseudonym of C. E. Raimond. Her first real success came with The Open Question in 1898 and after that she wrote under her own name. In 1900, she traveled to Alaska to find her brother Raymond who had gone missing during an expedition. She found him in Nome and spent the rest of the year there, later publishing works about these experiences. Back in London, she joined various women's rights organisations and took a very active part in suffrage over the ensuing years. She contributed numerous essays and articles to periodicals over her very long career. She returned to America during World War II, but returned to England in 1950. During her life, she was a close friend to many of London's literati including, the Woolfs, Shaw, Wilde, Henry James and John Masefield, the latter to whom she was romantically linked. Her other works include New Moon (1895), Below the Salt (1896), The Alaska-Klondike Diary of Elizabeth Robins (1900), The Magnetic North (1904), A Dark Lantern (1905), The Convert (1907), Come and Find Me (1908), Camilla (1918), The Messenger (1920), Ancilla's Share: An Indictment of Sex Antagonism (1924) and Both Sides of the Curtain (1940).
