1328) Margaret Mitchell

Margaret Munnerlyn Mitchell (1900 – 1949). American novelist and journalist. Mitchell wrote only one novel, published during her lifetime, the American Civil War-era novel Gone with the Wind, for which she won the National Book Award for Most Distinguished Novel of 1936 and the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1937. In recent years long after her death, a collection of Mitchell's girlhood writings and a novella she wrote as a teenager, titled Lost Laysen, have been published. 
Her first husband was Berrien "Red" Kinnard Upshaw

- "She was a tiny woman, with auburn hair and the flawless, milky complexion she attributes to the heroine of her novel."  https://books.google.it/books…
