Ellen Glasgow (April 22, 1873 - November 21, 1945) was a Pulitzer Prize winning American novelist from Richmond, Virginia.
Beginning in 1897, Glasgow wrote 20 novels, mainly about life in Virginia. Her own education had been rudimentary, a fact Glasgow compensated for by reading widely. Today, her novels are regarded as more than just depictions of life in the Southern United States.
Ellen maintained a close lifelong friendship with James Branch Cabell , another notable Richmond writer.
On her passing in 1945, Ellen Glasgow was interred at Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia.
