Louise Chandler Moulton (1835-1908), named Ellen Louise at birth, was the only child of Lucius Lemuel and Louisa Rebecca Clarke Chandler of Pomfret, Conn. She attended school in Pomfret, having as some of her classmates James McNeil Whistler (1834-1903) and Edmund Clarence Stedman (1833-1908), both of whom became lifelong friends. She also attended the Troy (N.Y.) Female Seminary for a year, graduating in June 1855, where she delivered one of her poems. Ellen Louise married, on 27 August 1855, William Upham Moulton ( -1898) and settled in Boston, Mass. They had two children: Florence (1859- ), who married William H. Schaefer ( - ); and William C. (1861-1861), who died in infancy.

Mrs. Moulton was a poet and active social figure in Boston and London. As a literary critic she took pride in introducing American readers to new poets and authors, and she gained recognition in this country for many of the English "Late Romantics."
