Mildred Aldrich (1853-1928) was an American journalist and writer. In 1898 she moved to France and while living in Paris became a close friend of Gertrude Stein. Aldrich worked as a foreign correspondent and newspaper critic until retiring to Huiry, a village on the outskirts of Paris. During the First World War, Aldrich wrote A Hilltop on the Marne, a book based on her journal entries (3rd June - 8th September 1914) and on letters she wrote to Gertrude Stein.The book sold well in the United States and she followed it with On the Edge of the War Zone (1917), The Peak of the Load (1918) and When Johnny Comes Marching Home (1919).
