Matilda Coxe Stevenson (1850, May 12 – 1915, June 24), who also wrote under the name Tilly E. Stevenson, was an American ethnologist,
born in San Augustine, Texas.
Born Matilda Coxe Evans, in 1872, she married James Stevenson (1840-1888), an ethnologist with whom she spent 13 years in
explorations of the Rocky Mountain region. In the 1880s, the Stevensons "formed the first husband-wife team in anthropology."
In 1885, Matilda Coxe Stevenson became the first President of the Women's Anthropological Society of America.
After 1889, she was on the staff of the Bureau of American Ethnology of the Smithsonian Institution. Stevenson explored the
cave, cliff, and mesa ruins of New Mexico, studied all the Pueblo tribes of that state, and from 1904 to 1910 made a special
study of the Taos and Tewa Native Americans.
