  • Many of my favorite things I read for this piece were contemporary newspaper tributes upon her death in 1911. They’re easy to find.
  • By far the most useful thing I read was Lenore Skomal’s The Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter: The Remarkable True Story of American Heroine, Ida Lewis. It’s very well researched and highly readable.
