25 August 1845 - 16 May 1925
English novelist, short-story writer, and poet, sometimes identified as "Mrs. Alfred Baldwin" and as the mother of British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin, who held the post 3 separate times in the 1920s and '30s. As if that weren't enough, she was also one of Rudyard Kipling's aunts. (Louisa was one of the four "MacDonald Sisters," noted Victorian women who rose to prominence either through their own efforts, their marriages to important men, or being the mothers of important men.) Baldwin, who once modeled for the noted Pre-Raphaelite painter Edward Burne-Jones, spent much of her adult life in a state of poor health; some biographers suspect she was a hypochondriac.
