Elizabeth Brody was the wife of Marcus Brody.


Elizabeth first met Marcus Brody while he was teaching a class on Nordic mythology at a Midwestern university. They later married and the woman inspired Brody's study of Nordic heritage in the Americas.

However, a few years after their vows, Elizabeth died from pneumonia. After her passing, Brody committed himself wholly to the National Museum and his 1926 "New Evidence of Ancient Forays to the Americas" exhibition was dedicated to her memory.
