Harriet Lummis Smith (1866—1947) was a prolific short story writer, publishing in newspapers and magazines such as McClure’s Magazine, the Youth’s Companion, the Independent, Lippincott’s, and many more. She also was one of the “Pollyanna” authors writing at least four of the “Glad books” as well as a number of novels and romances.

Born in 1866, she received her Bachelor of Arts in 1886. Her early career was as a teacher of mathematics and Latin. Encouraged by a publisher to take up writing full time she left teaching and dedicated herself to writing. She was a member of The Woman's Literary Club of Baltimore from 1909 and became president of the club in 1916.
