Martha J. Lamb (August 13, 1829 – January 2, 1893) was a United States author, editor, and historian. After the Civil War she divorced her husband and moved to New York City and wrote articles on a wide array of subjects for Harper’s and other periodicals. She realized that history was her true calling and she began extensive research for History of the City of New York: Its Origin, Rise, and Progress.  In 1883 she purchased the Magazine of American History, a financially struggling monthly founded in 1877. Lamb was a fixture in New York social circles and was twice invited to the White House.
