Author, photographer, and historian of St. Louis, Missouri. Elinor Martineau Coyle was a pioneer in the St. Louis Renaissance Movement of the 1950s to the 1970s. She wrote and took photographs for a number of books about St. Louis history, including "Old St. Louis Homes 1764-1865: The Stories They Tell," "St. Louis: Portrait of a River City," "St. Louis Homes, 1866-1916: The Golden Age" and "St. Louis Treasures." All of her books were published by her husband, Charles S. Coyle, founder of the Folkestone Press.
