This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Freda Widder Ledford was a painter of landscapes and flowers. She was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in 1894. (In census records her year of birth gradually creeps up to 1896.) She studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where she won a prize that enabled her to travel to Europe.

She was employed at a Harrisburg printing company and designed several magazine covers.

As a wife and mother, she maintained her interest in painting; she taught art classes, gave talks, and organized arts events in her community. I

In 1945 she moved to Asheville, North Carolina, where she continued to teach and paint. She died in 1959 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
