Sonia Haft Greene Lovecraft Davis (16 March 1883 – 26 December 1972) was a one-time pulp fiction writer and amateur publisher, a single mother, business woman and successful milliner who bankrolled several fanzines in the early twentieth century. She is best known for her two-year marriage to American weird fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft. She was a president of the United Amateur Press Association.

Sonia Haft Greene (16 March 1883 - 26 December 1972): Wife of Howard Phillips Lovecraft, whom she married on 3 March 1924. Some of Sonia's biographical details are unclear – she was born as either Sonia Haft Shafirkin or as Sonia Shaferkin Haft in either Ichnya, Ukraine or Konotop, Chernigov Province. She first emigrated to England with her mother and later to New York City, arriving there in either 1892 or 1895. On 24 December 1899, Sonia married Samuel Greene, whose name may have originally been Samuel Seckendorff; he died sometime around 1916, perhaps by suicide. During this marriage, Sonia gave birth to two children: a son who died before four months of age, and Florence Carol. Sonia met Howard Phillips Lovecraft in 1921 through their common interest in amateur journalism. They were married in St. Paul's Chapel in Manhattan, and lived together in Brooklyn. After their separation, she moved to California where, in 1936, she married Dr. Nathaniel Abraham Davis, who died only ten years later. For much of her life, Sonia worked in women's fashions, at one time owning her own millinery (hat) shop.
