Eleanore Meyers (Myers) Jewett
(1890–1967) A prolific writer with a fascination for the medieval period, Eleanore was a member of several womens' clubs involved in suffrage. She completed a Masters Degree in Medieval Comparative Literature at Columbia, and received a Newbery Honor in 1947 for her mystery story The Hidden Treasure of Glaston.
Eleanore left a small but solid contribution to both the women's suffrage movement and the field of children's literature.
