Elizabeth Oakes Smith (1806-1893)

Elizabeth Oakes Prince Smith was a writer, lecturer, abolitionist and feminist. She published early stories in "Godey's Lady's Book" and other journals using the pseudonym, "Ernest Helfenstein." In 1845 Smith's poems were reprinted as "The Complete Poetical Writings of Elizabeth Oakes Smith." Three volumes of stories, subtitled "stories not for good children, or bad children, but real children," appeared in the 1840s. Her series of ten articles for Horace Greeley's "Tribune," entitled "Woman and Her Needs," appeared in 1850-51. Starting in 1850 Oakes Smith attended women's rights conventions every year and lectured frequently on women's issues. During her life she also wrote novels and an autobiography.
