GLADYS TABER (1899–1980) was a prolific author and columnist for Ladies' Home Journal and Family Circle. She is perhaps best recalled for a series of books and columns about her life at Stillmeadow, a 17th-century farmhouse in Southbury, Connecticut. She wrote books about her simple life in New England that possessed homespun wisdom doled out with earthy humor and an appreciation for the small things.
