Olive Tilford Dargan

a.k.a. Olive (nee) Tilford Dargan, Fielding Burke *

Author Code: AOTD

Born: Jan. 10, 1869 - (?) Kentucky, USA

Died: Jan. 22, 1968 - Asheville, North Carolina, USA

Educated at Peabody College and Radcliffe College, Tilford worked at a variety of secretarial and teaching jobs until 1898 when she married South Carolinian Pegram Dargan. The couple were both interested in becoming writers and moved to New York City to pursue their careers. In 1904, she published Semiramis, a collection of short plays. Because of Olive's poor health, they lived in England from 1911 to 1914 where Olive produced some verse and more plays. In 1915, Pegram was lost at sea on a trip to the West Indies. Olive published Cycle's Rim in his memory. The book won her the poetry award from the Southern Society of New York. She became a regular contributor to Scribner's and other leading magazines and settled in Almond, North Carolina on a farm her husband had purchased. She published Lute and Furrow in 1922 which again achieved critical acclaim. From 1923 to 1925, she traveled in Europe and on her return to America, settled in Asheville. In 1924, she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of North Carolina. Two of her most memorable works, Call Home the Heart (1932) and A Storm Came Rolling (1935) were produced when Olive was in her sixties. She continued to write until her death at the age of 99. Her other works include Lords and Lovers (1906), The Mortal Gods (1912), The Welsh Pony (1913), Pathflowers (1914), Flutter of the Gold Leaf[With Frederick Petersen] (1922), Highland Annals (1925), From My Highest Hill (1941), Sons of the Stranger (1947), The Spotted Hawk (1958) and Innocent Bygamy (1962).
