Elinor Wylie
Original name: Elinor Morton Hoyt
Birth: Sep. 7, 1887
Somerset County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Dec. 16, 1928
New York County (Manhattan)

Author. Raised in Washington, D.C., she was the granddaughter of Henry M. Hoyt, a former Governor of Pennsylvania. After graduating from Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Maryland, she made her literary debut with the privately published novel "Incidental Numbers" (1912), and came to prominence after World War I. In 1922 she was named the literary editor of Vanity Fair magazine. Wylie was highly esteemed for her poetry and fiction during the 1920s and 30s, but her reputation has declined since then. Her seven other novels include "Jennifer Lorn" (1923), "The Venetian Glass Nephew" (1925), "The Orphan Angel" (1926), and "Mr. Hodge and Mr. Hazard" (1928). Her poetry collections include "Nets to Catch the Wind" (1921), "Black Amour" (1923), "Trivial Breath" (1928), and the posthumously published "Angels and Earthly Creatures" (1929) and "Collected Poems of Elinor Wylie" (1932). Wylie suffered from high blood pressure all her adult life, which caused severe migraines and contributed to her death of a stroke at the age of 41. (bio by: Clare Bradley)
