Question/Topic: Behind every great man...Quotation 
Answer/Pointer: Ann Rabjohns, Detroit (Michigan) Public Library, has identified two quotations that share the assumption that "Behind every great man there is a woman." (RQ 18, no. 2, Winter 1978). In his short biography of James Oliver (Complete works, v. 17, p. 243), Elbert Hubbard wrote "The man who succeeds is the one who is helped by a good woman." 
Librarian: LCLCPL
