Eva Greene

Eva Greene nee Stutzer (1883 - 1979) was married to Edward Greene, a younger brother of Olive Schreiner’s close friend Alice Greene. Eva was born in Germany to German parents, and was the youngest of six daughters. The family later moved to Brazil where Eva met Edward Greene, who was then working as a partner in a firm of coffee importers. They were married in 1901 and subsequently had six children. Schreiner came to know Eva Greene while she was living in London during the First World War, and her letters to Alice Greene suggest that a warm friendship developed between them. A number of Eva Greene’s’s letters to Schreiner are extant although none of Schreiner’s letters to her survive.
