Gladys Taber was born in 1899 to a family who was on the move. Her father was a mining engineer so the family lived all around the country. She went to college at Wellesley and taught creative writing at Columbia University. In addition to her teaching she wrote columns for Ladies Home Journal and Family Circle. While living in New York City, she and her husband were friends with the Mayers. The two young families decided to purchase a country home together in order to give their children the opportunity to enjoy a world outside the city. Stillmeadow was that farm and through the years, Gladys wrote of their days in this beautiful place.
I am still on the look out for Ms Taber's other works...it is like a treasure hunt but I keep on the prowl for them!!
