Alternate Name(s): Mrs. Bell Martin (alternate name); Martin (maiden name); Bell (married name)

Biography: Philanthropist. Neice of novelist Harriet Letitia Martin. See entry in DNB, Loeber, or Sutherland. NB: A number of titles by "M. M. Bell" are attributed to Martin, but since most were published after her death, it is doubtful they are by her. Only the two titles listed her are definitely written by her.
