The author wrote about the lives of women as well as the lace industry in war-torn Belgium. She had first had knowledge of these subjects through her appointment to the Commission of Relief in Belgium in 1916.
Kellog, along with American journalist, Marie Mattingly Meloney, gathered funds to obtain a gram of radium for Marie Curie's research in 1921. She was also appointed by President Harding to escort Curie on the voyage between Paris and New York. Her correspondence with Marie Curie is preserved in the University of Chicago Library Special Collections. Additional items are held by the Library of Congress.

We appreciate corrections and additions to our information about authors, but please read the following guidelines and caveats carefully.

  • The Nebraska Authors database is based on publicly available sources. Unless you are the author contacting us in person, it helps us if you cite the source or sources of your information. We cannot include unsourced information in the database.
  • We may be appreciative of information we choose not to include in the publicly available database.
  • To include an image on an author profile, please send jpg attachment to nebraskaauthors@lincoln.ne.gov. A photo-release agreement is required before the image will be published on this site.
  • Because of the way we are staffed, expect corrections or additions to take time, sometimes up to three months.
  • While we initially included some actual links to external URLs in the database, we will in the future no longer provide functioning links. We will instead record the presence of specific external materials in language that we hope will help intelligent users find it themselves. Web rot, in which actual materials remain online but undergo changes in their URLs, is too demanding in terms of staff time for us to hope to keep external links current.

Please copy, fill out the form below, and email it to NebraskaAuthors@lincoln.ne.gov to suggest a change.
