Mission

Our mission is to inspire and connect people through the world created by author, illustrator and early American lifestyle icon, Tasha Tudor.

Organizational History

This organization was founded in 2006 by Tasha’s grand-daughter-in-law, Amy Tudor and it received federal exempt status in 2007, six months before Tasha passed away.  Tasha was pleased that her family founded an organization to preserve and celebrate her lifetime of work and joy.

From 2007- 2010, charter members donated over $123,000 and the organization (originally known as the Tasha Tudor Museum) opened an exhibit space in West Brattleboro, Vermont.

From 2009-2016, the organization created a new exhibit each summer and welcomed a total of 5300 guests from around the world.

In 2017,  the Tasha Tudor Society revised its direction and closed the exhibit space. In its place, we are growing the Society Chapters, producing our award-winning printed Journal, and developing new programs to reach a wider audience.

Board of Trustees

Ann Beneduce, Tasha Tudor’s longtime editor and friend, joined the Tasha Tudor Society as a founding board member, introducing the idea of creating a Chapter program. Ann has been an editor of children’s books since 1960, when she joined the J.B. Lippincott Co. She subsequently held top posts at World Publishing Company, T.Y. Crowell, and the American subsidiary of William Collins Publishers before founding her own imprint, Philomel Books, as a division of the Putnam Publishing Group devoted to quality trade books for young readers.

Amy Tudor, founded the Tasha Tudor Society a few years after meeting her future husband Winslow and seeing the tremendous impact Tasha’s work had on her legions of fans. Amy co-founded the family enterprise, Tasha Tudor and Family Inc. in 1999 and is currently the CEO.

Winslow Tudor, Tasha’s grandson, brings an expertise for all things Tasha Tudor that could only be achieved by growing up next door. Winslow was a founding member of the family business, Tasha Tudor and Family Inc.; maintains Tasha Tudor’s Vermont homestead and published his first book The Tasha Tudor Family Cookbook in 2016.
