Gamel Woolsey (May 28 1895 - January 18, 1968) was an American poet and novelist. Woolsey was born on the Breeze Hill plantation in Aiken, South Carolina, as Elizabeth (Elsa) Gammell Woolsey, but in later years took her middle name which she shortened to "Gamel" (a Norse word meaning "old"). Her father was plantation owner William Walter Woolsey (July 18, 1842 - 1909) . The Woolsey branch of the New England Dwight family, had influence in the law, the church and education. Her father had first married Catherine Buckingham Convers, daughter of Charles Cleveland Convers, but she died in 1888. Her aunt, Sarah Chauncey Woolsey - better known by her pen name, Susan Coolidge - wrote the popular Katy series and other children's fiction. Her uncles and cousins included three presidents of Yale University.
