Biographical Note

Elizabeth Lewisohn Eisenstein (1923-2016) was a scholar of early-modern France and the history of printing. Born in New York City, she attended the Lincoln School and Vassar College, from which she graduated in the Class of 1945-44. She earned her Ph.D. in history from Radcliffe College in 1953. From 1959 to 1974 she taught as an adjunct professor at American University in Washington, D. C., where she lived for most her life. In 1974 she joined the faculty of the University of Michigan, serving there as the Alice Freeman Palmer Professor of History until her retirement in 1988. In 1979 she was named a resident consultant to the Center for the Book at the Library of Congress. She also served on the board of governors of the Folger Shakespeare Library and taught in its Folger Institute seminar series. A dedicated and influential scholar, Eisenstein produced numerous monographs, articles, lectures, and book reviews. Her most famous work was The Printing Press as an Agent of Change (1979), a two-volume study that established her as one of the foremost historians of printing in the world. She received several awards and honors for her work, including the 2002 Award for Scholarly Distinction from the American Historical Association and fellowships from the Guggenheim and Rockefeller foundations and the National Endowment for the Humanities. As well as a renowned scholar, Eisenstein was a skilled tennis player who competed internationally in senior tournaments.
