Caroline Ferguson Gordon, born October 6, 1895, grew up on a farm in Kentucky. In 1925 she married Allen Tate, a poet and literary critic who led the charge of the Southern Agrarian literary movement. Together they pursued their careers in writing, forging close bonds with legendary figures like Robert Lowell, Hart Crane, Flannery O'Connor and Katherine Anne Porter. In 1931, Caroline published her first novel, Penhally, and in 1934 released her most popular work Aleck Maury, Sportsman . Her relationship with Tate grew volatile, and they divorced, remarried, and finally divorced permanently in 1959. Caroline continued to move around the country throughout her life, living at various times in North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, and Washington state. In 1978 she moved to San Cristóbal de las Casas in Chiapas, Mexico, to be with her daughter and died there on April 11, 1981.
