Elizabeth Moynihan is an architectural historian and author, specializing in the study of Mughal gardens in India. She served on the Indo-U.S. Sub-Commission on Education and Culture for many years. While living in India, Ms. Moynihan authored a survey of surviving Moghul gardens, which was published in 1979 as "Paradise as a Garden in Persia and Moghul India." She also did research on Babur, the founder of the Moghul dynasty. In the process, she located and documented four previously unknown 16th century gardens built by Babur.
