Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Donald Robert Perry Marquis (born July 29, 1878, in Walnut, Illinois - died December 29, 1937, in New York City) was an American humorist, journalist and author. He was variously a novelist, poet, newspaper columnist and playwright. He is remembered best for creating the characters "Archy" and "Mehitabel," supposed authors of humorous verse. Marquis grew up in Walnut, Illinois. His brother David died in 1892 at the age of 20; his father James died in 1897. After graduating from Walnut High School in 1894, he attended Knox Academy, a now-defunct preparatory program run by Knox College, in 1896, but left after three months. From 1902 to 1907 he served on the editorial board of the Atlanta Journal where he wrote many editorials during the heated election between his publisher Hoke Smith and future Pulitzer Prize winner, Clark Howell (Smith was the victor).show more
