Elizabeth Hope Savage (born 1937) was the eldest daughter of Henry Savage, Jr. (1903-1990) author and Mayor of Camden}, North Carolina, and his second wife Elizabeth Jones (1908-1994). Generally known as Hope Savage, she became attached to the Beat Generation group of poets via one of its key members, poet Gregory Corso.

Early life[edit]

Little is known about the childhood and adolescence of Hope Savage. Here is what Gregory Corso had to say about her:

"Hope Savage, her father was mayor of Camden, South Carolina - on her window was scribed with a diamond ring Thou shall be satisfied - that was the woman whose husband was shot in the last duel in the South - Thou shall be satisfied - Camden, South Carolina. This angel they put in a loonie bin in the early (think again) 1947 to give shock treatment for the simple reason there was 200 squirrels in magnolia trees, so the mayor, her father, got the sheriff and his deputies to blow away the squirrels and my beautiful Hope, 15 years, stood against the tree: "You gotta do me before you do the squirrels!" She was a woman in the Beat Generation that was big, she put her body on the line, they grabbed her, the family saw that they were doing great paying 50 dollars a day to get shock treatment - remember this is 1947, but I don't know if people know what was happening right after WW2 ..." (Quote from video recording Gregory Corso Reading 1994 <>)

Later years[edit]

According to information found in Camden Archives & Museum, Hope Savage was living in Amsterdam in 1994.
