Mary Anne Everett Green’s life spanned most of the nineteenth century. She won praise as an historian of 41 volumes of documentary history, which remain authoritative and indeed indispensable. Yet she is largely unknown to Victorianists and some feminist theories of historiography would preclude her career all together. Reestablishing Green’s reputation requires innovative methods of scholarship across several disciplines.
