William March *

a.k.a. William Edward Campbell

Author Code: AWMM

Born: Sep. 18, 1893 - Mobile, Alabama, USA

Died: May 15, 1954 - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

From a large and poor family, March received only limited education in his youth. Working in a variety of jobs he managed to save enough to return to receive his high school education. He subsequently studied law at the University of Alabama, but was forced to leave due to financial constraints. He moved to Brooklyn in 1916 and took a job with a New York law firm. In 1917, he enlisted in the U.S. Marines and the following year went to France with the 5th Marines. March saw action which included Verdun, Belleau Wood, Soissons and Saint-Mihel and was woundedon more than one occasion. He was highly decorated, receiving both the French Croix de Guerre and the Distinguished Service Cross. He returned to America in 1919 and worked for an Alabama law firm before joining the Waterman Steamship Corporation as a private secretary to the owner, eventually moving up to vice president. He moved to New York in 1928 and began to write short stories. In 1933, he published Company K, a novel about WWI which established him on the literary scene. Later that year he moved to Germany and thereafter to London in 1936. He returned to America in 1937 and resigned from Waterman in order to concentrate on his writing. In 1943, he published The Looking-Glass, undoubtedly his best work. He suffered a nervous breakdown in 1947 and returned to Mobile where he continued to live, apart from visits to New York, until 1950 when he moved to New Orleans. There he wrote his final two novels before suffering two heart attacks which took his life in 1954. His other works include Come in at the Door (1934), The Little Wife and Other Stories (1935), The Tallons (1936), Some Like Them Short (1939), October Island (1952) and Bad Seed (1954).
