Maud Holt (1866-1952) was born in Carbondale, Illinois, and moved to Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1886 when she married Winfield Scott Holt. She was an avid traveler and in her sojourns sketched and painted to express her deep appreciation of nature. In 1892, while in Paris, one of her still life paintings was accepted for exhibit in the Salon, at the Palais de l'Industrie.
Her books include: Studio Talk (1939), A Travelogue through the Years (1940), a compilation of her travels, and Devotion (1948), a collection of short stories.
