Ellen Anderson Gholson Glasgow (1873-1945) was a Pulitzer Prize winning American novelist from Richmond, Virginia. Beginning in 1897, she wrote 20 novels, mainly about life in Virginia. Her own education had been rudimentary, a fact she compensated for by reading widely. Today, her novels are regarded as more than just depictions of life in the Southern United States. She maintained a close lifelong friendship with James Branch Cabell, another notable Richmond writer. On her passing in 1945, she was interred at Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia. Amongst her works are The Voice of the People (1900), The Battle Ground (1902), The Deliverance; A Romance of the Virginia Tobacco Fields (1904), The Wheel of Life (1906), The Miller of Old Church (1911), Life and Gabriella: The Story of a Woman's Courage (1916) and One Man in His Time (1922).

I can't say after this that I never lifted my hand against a woman--but harsh measures are sometimes necessary, I reckon. Does it smart?"
