Alice James & Katharine Peabody Loring: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/4245808.html

Alice James was a American diarist. She was sister of novelist Henry James. Her and Katharine Peabody Loring was one of the most celebrated Boston marriages. "I wish you could know Katharine Loring. She is a most wonderful being. She had all the mere brute superiority which distinguishes man from woman combined with all the distinctly feminine virtues. There is nothing she cannot do from hewing wood and drawing water to driving run-away horses and educating all the women in North America."

Frankie Howerd & Dennis Heymer: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/3554542.html

Frankie Howerd was a staple of British comedy radio, television, and film for over forty years. Howerd lived for over thirty years in a not-always-monogamous relationship with his manager Dennis Heymer. A dapper figure, Heymer was working as a wine waiter at the Dorchester on Park Lane when he met Howerd, who was having dinner there with Sir John and Lady Mills; it was 1958, homosexuality was still illegal, and Howerd was beginning to despair about his career and his physical attractiveness.

Louisa May Alcott (November 29, 1832 – March 6, 1888): http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/4246255.html

Louisa May Alcott, who published twenty-nine books and story collections in forty-four years, told poet Louise Chandler Moulton in 1873 that she had remained a spinster “because I have fallen in love with so many pretty girls and never once the least bit with any man.” A bold statement that gives few details. Like most of the reform-minded women in her circle, Alcott was an ardent feminist and questioned how women’s relationships with men affected their place in society.

Micheál Mac Liammóir & Hilton Edwards: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/4246492.html

Hilton Edwards was an English-born Irish actor and theatrical producer. He was the romantic partner of Micheál MacLiammóir. While acting in Ireland with a touring company, Mac Liammóir met Edwards. Their first meeting took place in the Athenaeum, Enniscorthy, County Wexford, which is currently in a state of disrepair. Deciding to remain in Dublin, where they lived at Harcourt Terrace, Mac Liammóir and Edwards threw themselves into their venture, cofounding the Gate Theatre in Dublin in 1928.

Parker Tyler & Charles Boultenhouse: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/1558104.html

Harrison Parker Tyler, better known as Parker Tyler, was an American author, poet, and film critic. Charles Boultenhouse met Parker Tyler in 1945 when Boultenhouse moved to New York in order to attend Columbia University. Boultenhouse had read Tyler’s The Hollywood Hallucination and had been deeply impressed by Tyler’s creative and intelligent analysis of commercial film. Soon after their meeting the two men became lovers; they lived together for almost thirty years, until Tyler’s death in 1974.

Wilna Hervey & Nan Mason: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/4246870.html

Wilna Hervey and Nan Mason were artists, actresses and occasional house painters, staying together for 59 years. 6’3” Wilna found some success in silent films, playing rugged mountain girls and other hardy characters. She met Nan, the daughter of her frequent co-star Dan Mason, on a film set in 1920 and soon after they were never parted. From Woodstock, NY to Carmel, California, Wilna and Nan danced, sculpted, painted and played their way through many of America’s bohemian artist’s colonies.
