LOUISE MAUDE (1855-1939) was born in Moscow, one of six children of the expatriate British businessman James Stewart Shanks, who was co-owner of a jewelery business and English store. Louise later married Aylmer Maude, who was working in Moscow as director of the Anglo-Russian Carpet Company. They lived many years in Moscow, became close friends with Lev Tolstoy, and spent the last 40 years of their lives translating and promoting Tolstoy's work from England. Tolstoy thought highly of the Maudes's translations, saying better translators "could not be invented."
