NPR Sunday Puzzle (July 10) - Famous American Woman

NPR Sunday Puzzle (July 10) - Famous American Woman
Q: Think of a famous American woman with a three part name. When you take the first and last letters of each part of her name and rearrange them, you can make the word "berths". Who is this woman?
I know the answer to this puzzle, and I'll reveal it after the deadline on Thursday. Hint: She's not living and none of her names start with E. Edit: Okay here's the answer:
A: Harriet Beecher Stowe, the author of Uncle Tom's Cabin.
H...T B...R S...E --> BERTHS

For NPR puzzle posts, don't post the answer or any hints that could lead to the answer before the deadline (usually Thursday at 3pm ET). If you know the answer, submit it to NPR, but don't give it away here.

You may provide indirect hints to the answer to show you know it, but make sure they don't assist with solving. You can openly discuss your hints and the answer after the deadline. Thank you.
