Drue Heinz, born Doreen Mary English,[1] is a prominent patron of the literary arts in the United States.

She is the publisher of the famous literary magazine The Paris Review, which was started in 1953 by Peter Matthiessen, Thomas H. Guinzburg, and Harold L. Humes, and edited until his death in 2003 by George Plimpton. Its first publisher was Prince Sadruddhin Aga Khan.

Heinz also established the Drue Heinz Literature Prize. Since 1981 it has recognized, through book publication by the University of Pittsburgh Press, outstanding collections of short fiction. She is the sponsor of The Royal Oak Foundation's Drue Heinz Lecture Series.

She has also endowed a chair at St. John's College, Oxford called the Drue Heinz Professor of American Literature. She also sponsors the Drue Heinz Lectures in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the Drue Heinz Study Center for Drawings and Prints at the National Design Museum. She inspired the creation of Heinz Hall Plaza in Pittsburgh and chose the sculpture there. Funds from her foundation generate exhibitions at the Carnegie Museum of Art's Heinz Architectural Center and help publish the Lincoln Center Theater Review.

She was elected in 2002 an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature [2]

Her first two husbands were John Mackenzie Robertson (one daughter, Wendy) and Dale Wilford Maher, the first secretary of the U. S. legation in Johannesburg, South Africa (died 1948).[1]

As "Doreen English" she had a small role in the 1948 movie Uneasy Terms, which starred Michael Rennie.[3]

In 1953 she became the third wife of H. J. Heinz II (1908–1987), and stepmother to Pennsylvania United States Senator John Heinz (1938–1991).

She resides in Manhattan.
