LONDON (AP) — Drue Heinz, a philanthropist who championed Anglo-American authors and founded a publishing house, has died at her home in Scotland. She was 103.

Heinz died March 30 and it was announced by Heinz Endowments, a foundation established by the international food company created by the family of her late husband, H.J. Heinz II.

Heinz co-founded Ecco Press, which republished out-of-print books of outstanding merit, and served as the publisher of The Paris Review from 1993 to 2008.

She also sat on the boards of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York, as well as the American Academy in Rome.

Foundation chairman André Heinz says Drue Heinz was a "very private person with very outward interests, notably in literature, art, architecture, philanthropy and her friendships."
