James Russell Lowell (1819-1891)

Lowell was a popular American poet. In 1844, Lowell married poet Maria White, an ardent abolitionist who encouraged him in his work. The nine years of their married life until her death in 1853 mark a time of great ambition and development in Lowell's career. From 1845 to 1850 he wrote about 50 antislavery articles for periodicals. Lowell was also editor of the "Atlantic Monthly" from 1857-1861. Later in his life he served as a minister to Spain (1877-80) and an ambassador to Great Britain (1880-85).
