Catherine Gasquoine Hartley 1867? – 1928 Author, journalist, headmistress; also known as Mrs. Walter M. Gallichan and Mrs. Arthur D. Lewis.

After composing an unsuccessful novel, Hartley went on to become a prolific journalist and author of non-fiction. She published books on art, Spanish culture and society, feminist issues, human sexuality, and children.
