Quoting Jane Erb <[log in to unmask]>:
>Early 1900s, what about Amy Marcy Cheney Beach (who chose to write as
>Mrs. H.H. Beach)?
I wouldn't say chose. Dr. Beach, her husband was very controlling of

insisted that when she did publish her music, that it be under the moniker
of Mrs. H. H. A. Beach. He was a real winner that one!
