Renshaw was President of the Renshaw School of Speech, formerly instructor in public speaking , Pennsylvania State College and the George Washington University. Anne Tillery Renshaw was probably better known as being in the title of the book, H. P. Lovecraft: Letters to Elizabeth Toldridge & Anne Tillery Renshaw. From a review of that book: "Anne Tillery Renshaw was a colleague of long standing, having known Lovecraft during his amateur journalism period in the 1910s. Late in life she commissioned Lovecraft to work on her treatise on English usage, Well-Bred Speech (1936). This edition publishes for the first time several chapters that Lovecraft wrote for that book that were dropped before publication."
