Shultz, Gladys Denny



Gladys Denny Shultz was graduated from Drake University in 1918 and received her first writing experience on the staff of the Des Moines (Ia.) Register where she worked while her husband served in World War I, took his law degree, and established his law practice. Following the birth of her daughter and son, and the death of her husband in 1931, Mrs. Shultz continued her career as a free-lance writer of articles and fiction.

Because of her own interests as a home-maker and mother, Mrs. Shultz specialized in articles on child care and training and was made head of Better Homes and Gardens department of child care soon after the magazine's inception.

From the jacket of Widows Wise and Otherwise published by J. B. Lippincott Company in 1949.

She also wrote under the name of Anne Gardner, mainly stories for newspaper serialization.
