Helen Hunt Jackson, writer and poet, born Helen Fiske in Amherst, Massachusetts. In 1852, she married U.S. Army Captain Edward Bissell Hunt. In 1875, she married her second husband, William Sharpless Jackson. In 1879 her interests turned to Native Americans after hearing a lecture in Boston by Ponca Chief Standing Bear. Upset about the mistreatment of Native Americans by government agents, Jackson became an activist. A fiery and prolific writer, Jackson engaged in heated exchanges with federal officials over the injustices committed against Indians. She is best known for two works, A Century of Dishonor, a sketch of the United States Government's dealings with some of the Indian Tribes (1882), and Ramona (1884). "The name 'Helen Hunt Jackson,' now universally applied to Jackson, includes the surnames of both her first husband, Edward Hunt, and her second husband, William Jackson. She never used this combined name either in publishing her work or in referring to herself." -- Kate Phillips, Helen Hunt Jackson: A Literary Life. University of California Press, 2003, p. 4.
