Kate Tannatt Woods (1836-1910) was an author, editor and journalist. She founded the Salem Thought and Work Club in 1891 to encourage women to "promote home study, and to secure literary and social advantages for its members" according to Kristin Bierfelt in her book North Shore Literary Trail.

Woods was a prolific writer of prose and verse from the age of ten.

She founded many women's clubs and published articles for Ladies Home Journal, the Boston Transcript and Harper's Bazaar.

Her husband was severely wounded in the Civil War and Kate's writing supported the family.

Woods' home was at 166 North Street. She operated a tea room at 36 Lynde Street where the Thought and Work Club met for years. It is no longer in existence.

Woods is buried in Greenlawn Cemetery, in north Salem.
