Paul Leicester Ford

Author Code: APLF

Born: Mar. 23, 1865 - Brooklyn, New York, USA

Died: May 8, 1902 - New York City, New York, USA

From an eminent family who's ancestors included Noah Webster, Ford initially became interested in writing when he received a small printing press as a gift when he was eleven. He began by reprinting and editing family manuscripts, but soon began to produce bibliographies and reprints of historical documents. In 1890, he became the co-editor of the Library Journal, a position he held until 1893. In 1894, he published The Hon. Peter Sterling and What People Thought of Him, which became a huge commercial success. His biggest success however came in 1899 with the publication of the historical novel Janice Meredith which made the best-seller list for 1900. Ford's The Writings of Thomas Jefferson (1892-96) remained the definitive scholarly work on the subject for half a century. Ford was murdered by his brother, the athlete Malcolm Webster Ford, who then committed suicide. Evidently, Ford had refused financial aid to his brother who was in dire straits. Ford's other works include Bibliotheca Hamiltoniana (1886), Essays on the Constitution of the United States (1892), Great K & A Train Robbery (1896), True George Washington (1896), Story of an Untold Love (1897), Tattle-Tales of Cupid (1898), Wanted - A Matchmaker (1900), A Family Tradition (1900), Wanted - A Chaperon (1902), Love Finds the Way (1904 Posthumous) and Warning to Lovers (1906 Posthumous).
