"Manual labor to my father was not only good and decent for it's own sake but, as he was given to saying, it straightened out one's thoughts." -- Mary Ellen Chase
Mary Ellen Chase (24 February 1887 — 28 July 1973) was an American educator, teacher, scholar, and author. She is regarded as one of the most important regional literary figures of the early twentieth century.

Born in Blue Hill, Maine, Chase received her Ph.D. in English from the University of Minnesota where she served as an assistant professor from 1922 to 1926. She taught at Smith College starting in 1926 until her retirement in 1955.

Chase wrote more than 30 books, many using her cherished Maine heritage as the setting, capturing the unique spirit and chronicling a way of life for generations. Her most famous of these works include Mary Peters, Silas Crockett, Windswept, and Edge of Darkness.

Chase died in Northampton, Massachusetts.
