Edgar A. Guest

a.k.a. Edgar Albert Guest

Author Code: AEAG

Born: Aug. 20, 1881 - Birmingham, England

Died: Aug. 5, 1959 - Detroit, Michigan, USA

Guest came to America with his family when he was ten years old. With only a basic education, he joined the Detroit Free Press as a copy boy in 1895 and eventually moved up to being a reporter. In 1898, he published his first poem and four years later he became a naturalized citizen. From 1904, Guest began writing a weekly column, 'Chaff', which was subsequently syndicated to over 300 newspapers throughout America. In 1909, he published his first book of poems, Home Rhymes, which was very popular. Over the next forty years, Guest published a large quantity of poetry and was one of America's most popular columnists. From 1934 to 1942, he broadcast a weekly program for NBC and, in 1951, moved on to television with 'A Guest in Your Home'. A prolific writer, Guest is said to have written over 11,000 poems. His works include A Heap O' Livin (1916), Just Folks (1917), Over Here (1918), When Day is Done (1921), The Passing Throng (1923), Harbor Lights of Home (1928), Faith (1932), Life's Highway (1933), Today and Tomorrow (1942) and Living the Years (1949).
