George Ade

Author Code: AGAD

Born: Feb. 9, 1866 - Kentland, Indiana, USA

Died: May 16, 1944 - Brook, Indiana, USA

Educated at Purdue University, Ade graduated in 1887. He became a reporter for the Chicago Morning News in 1890 and quickly showed himself to be a witty and inventive writer. He adopted a 'folksy' approach to his writing much as Mark Twain had done before him. In 1899, he published Fables in Slang, which was very successful and gave him nationwide recognition. During the early part of the century, he also had some success as a playwright and librettist, with works such as The Sultan of Sulu (1902) and Peggy From Paris (1903). Ade was one of the most financially successful writers of the early 20th century. In 1902, Ade moved to Brook, Indiana where he continued to reside until his death. Ade was very generous to his alma mater Purdue, supporting the building of the school football stadium. He continued to write until his final years and his works include Artie: A Story of the Streets and Town (1896), More Fables (1900), The County Chairman (1903), In Babel; Stories of Chicago (1903), True Bills (1904), The Slim Princess (1907), Verses and Jingles (1911), Ade's Fables (1914), Single Blessedness, and Other Observations (1922), Speaking to Father (1923), The Sigma Chi Creed (1929), On the Indiana Trail (1930), Thirty Fables in Slang (1933) and One Afternoon With Mark Twain (1939).
