After receiving his dgree in 1904, he began working as a librarian at the Public Library in Washington, D.C.

He began writing for the Boston Evening Transcript in 1906, contributing essays and humorous stories, often with a library as the backdrop. He was responsible for a hoax concerning the Old Librarian's Almanac, purportedly a reprint of a 1773 pamphlet, which was considered serious by many leading newspapers. In 1912, he published The Believing Years, an autobiographical work which was well-received. He moved to New York City in 1914 and worked for the N. Y. Public Library as Editor of Publications for the next 13 years. During this time he continued to publish his humorous works, in addition to his new found interest of criminal cases. His best-known work, Studies in Murder appeared in 1924 and was very popular. He also worked for a time as a screenwriter in Hollywood during the 1930's. His other works include The Library and the Librarian (1910), The Voyage of the Hoppergrass (1913), Theodore Roosevelt (1920), Murder at Smutty Nose and Other Murders (1926), Queer Books (1928), Instigation of the Devil (1930), More Studies in Murder (1936) and The Trial of Lizzie Borden (1937).
