Alexandria New Hampshire Author and Teacher, Louise Lamprey (1869-1951)

She was ahead of her time.  Born a minister’s daughter, Lunnette Emeline Lamprey, daughter of Rev. Henry  & Helen (Hardy) Lamprey, she used the pen name of Louise Lamprey, and wrote stories for children.

Probably her best known quotation occurred in 1897 when then newswoman. At that time, Louise Lamprey wrote, “President McKinley has no more backbone than a chocolate éclair.”  Her quip was later wrongfully attributed to Theodore Roosevelt.

In a brief autobiography, she expressed how she admired her mother’s talent and creativity.  Her first job in New York City was as an editorial writer (for eight weeks) for the “Washington Times” (daily) and the “Capital” (weekly), following by work in the Republican campaign headquarters in 1904.  She held various writing and secretarial jobs, including one in London from 1912-1914. For five summers she was story-teller, craft teacher and dramatic counselor in a children’s camp.  That experience led her to to write her children’s series of books.

Her books include “Children of Ancient Britain,” and “Days of the Colonists,” “The Great Days in American History Series,” “Children of Ancient Egypt,” “All the Ways of Building,” “The Treasure Valley,” “The Tomhawk Trail.”  “The Story of Cookery” ( illustrated by Arthur Townsend Lougee), “All theWays of Building,” (New York: Macmillan, 1946, Louise Lamprey and Helene Carter). She was listed in “Who’s Who in America.”

According to Lunnette (aka Louise): “the name Lamprey was originally Land-pre, the estate on a waste land, or moor, and the family settled on the edge of Wales, and received the right to wear coat armor for service in the Third Crusade. It is curious that without knowing anything about this I placed the scene of the opening chapters of “The Treasure Valley” dealing with that crusade, just about where the family must have lived at that time.  Another mediaeval family that lived over there at the time was that of Guelpheley, or Whelpley, ancestors of James Davenport Whelpley, whose secretary I was at one time.  On the Phelps side there is Quaker blood.”

Henry Lamprey of Concord NH.  They had two children: Lunnette E. and Myra A.  Ellen was educated at New Hampton, N.H., married, if i have the date right, 11 July 1867. [Regarding Ellen (Hardy) Lamprey: “As to my mother, she certainly had a good deal of talent in one way and another, especially in drawing, and could no doubt have done something in that line if she had lived a generation later, either in crayon or pencil.  In her later years she studied a good deal by herself, especially in connection with the Chautauqua course and her Concord, N.H. clubs. I think perhaps the most remarkable thing she took up was a correspondence course in mineralogy including qualitative analysis with test tubes, etc.  That was when she was somewhere near fifty. She had two or three thousand specimens of minerals, collected in the places where we loved or obtained by exchange. She was also very much interested in the study of art and belonged to a Shakespeare club in Concord. Also she was a member of the Wild Flower Club there,, and had a considerable clippings and so forth on, and note-books which in her later years became almost illegible, made it impossible to do anything with a lot of matter she collected, and I had to sift out what might be some use to somebody, and dispose of the rest… When a school girl mother seems to have had some ability as a writer. One of the relics I did not find, although I looked for it, was a collection of papers from the old Lyceum of her girlhood…I don’t know what has become of them. Among them was a piece of blank verse in the metre of Hiawatha about local people and incidents which she wrote. I have some pieces of dress she had on when she and father became engaged, a purple calico. He caught her in it, mopping the floor. I have also some of her letter-writing in the first year of her marriage. One letter to Aunt Lucy (Mrs. George J. Cummings) says she is writing on the bed, where Henry put her while he finished mopping the floor. Another speaks of his making her the tools for netting, probably for the elaborate netted edge of the two stand cloths I have. I have the work-box he made her and the tatting-shuttle, her crayons she used at school and her tools for making wax flowers, also the box with Oriental painting cover she made for grandmother. I have the two big copies of Cole’s Voyage of Life in crayon and the St. Agnes, but they are too big to hang on any available wall space I have; and I have a rug she embroidered in wools from her own design, which I expect to turn over to a museum in Concord.”
