About Edith Russell
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Edith Finch, Countess Russell (1900-1978) was Bertrand Russell's fourth and last wife, and by all accounts, provided him with the marriage that made him happiest. She was born to Edward Bronson Finch, a physician, and his wife, Delia, in New York City. She was educated at Bryn Mawr College and St. Hilda's College, Oxford. She was employed as an instructor of English literature at Bryn Mawr, but she never became a permanent member of the faculty. She published biographies of Wilfred Scawen Blunt in 1938 and M. Carey Thomas, a president of Bryn Mawr, in 1947. She married Bertrand Russell, whom she had known for many years, in December 1952 and supported him in his many causes.
