Elisabeth is described by her daughter, Barbara, as a "thoroughly delightful, sassy southern woman who possessed great charm but was also very down to earth". She was reared in Dallas, TX and was chosen as one of the debutants of the year. She met her future husband shortly after WWI while he was stationed at Love Field. Although he started out as a stockbroker in Boston, they moved to 1165 5th Ave, N.Y. in an apartment which possessed 7 park side facing windows when he became an executive with the Audubon Society. She started her advanced schooling at Bryn Mawr College but completed her degree many years later at Columbia under the tutelage of English Professors Mark Van Dorn & Lionell Trilling. Never one to stay idle, she volunteered in the efforts to place music in New York public schools and worked as a personal assistant to the president of the Nightingale-Bamford School. Her hobbies included gardening and she became a member of the N.Y. Cosmopolitan Club. She had two daughters, Barbara & Joan.
