Biographical / Historical:
Born in Berlin, Eva Lewin-Richter Meyerowitz (1899-1994) was an anthropologist and photographer. In 1925 she married sculptor, educator, and British colonial administrator in Africa, Herbert Meyerowitz (1900-1945). They had one child. Eva and Herbert moved to South Africa and collaboratively surveyed the indigenous crafts of the Gold Coast. In South Africa, Herbert taught at Cape Town University and opened an art school. Having moved away from Africa for several years, Meyerowitz returned after World War II and lived for forty years in the Bono-Tekyiman State of Ghana. She was made Queen Mother there in 1950.

Some of Meyerowitz's publications include: The Akan of Ghana (1958); The Divine Kingship in Ghana and Ancient Egypt (1962); and At the Court of an African King (1962).
