Who is Adelaide Anne Procter?
Adelaide Anne Procter was an English poet and philanthropist. She worked prominently on behalf of unemployed women and the homeless, and was actively involved with feminist groups and journals.

She suffered from ill health, possibly due to her charity work, and died of tuberculosis at the age of 38.
