Ann E. Beatty (July 15, 1857 - November 19, 1956) was an Esperantist from Cardington, Ohio, who, in the early 1920s compiled and published, probably in 1924, the first and to date the largest Esperanto-language hymnal published in North America, Espero Internacia. It was "translated for Christian Home Orphanage, Council Bluffs, Iowa" though it is unclear whether the Orphanage, which is still in existence as Children's Square, solicited or even knew in advance of the project, just as it is unclear whether the texts in Espero Internacia are wholly the product of Miss Beatty's work in translating. Some of the contents (texts and/or tunes) are explicitly credited to her, but most are uncredited. Go to person page >
