Durham, Mary Edith
Mary Edith Durham (8 December 1863 - 15 November 1944) was a British writer, artist, and traveler. She became renowned for her anthropological accounts of life in the Balkan States, especially Albania, in the early twentieth century.
The daughter of a distinguished London surgeon, Durham was educated privately, developing a talent for watercolor painting and illustration before ultimately attending the Royal Academy of Arts and Bedford College in London. Durham contributed detailed illustrations to the amphibian and reptiles volume of the Cambridge Natural History (1899) and exhibited her work widely. Her work became anthropologically significant; she frequently contributed to the journal Man and became a Fellow at the Royal Anthropological Institute.
