COLLIER, Ada Langworthy
"Lilith," a poetical story published in 1892, is considered by some authorities to be her most important work. Her first writings were hospital sketches from the CIVIL WAR. She also produced word pictures in her travel sketches entitled "A Day's Ramble" and "Among the Mountain Mists." Collier was a charter member and former president of the DUBUQUE LADIES' LITERARY ASSOCIATION. She married Robert Hutcheson COLLIER in 1867. Their home on West 3rd was known as "Linden Croft."
