Helen Smith Woodruff

Born in Selma, Alabama, author Helen Smith Woodruff wrote several popular books for children and young adults in the second decade of the twentieth century. What made her unique is that all profits from the books were donated to charity, including a children?s hospital in Birmingham that she helped found.
