Franklin P. Adams

a.k.a. Franklin Pierce Adams, FPA *

Author Code: AFPA

Born: Nov. 15, 1881 - Chicago, Illinois, USA

Died: Mar. 23, 1960 - New York City, New York, USA

Educated at the Armour Scientific Academy in Chicago and the University of Michigan, Adams left college after a year to pursue a job in insurance with Equitable Life. In 1903, he became a columnist for the Chicago Journal. He moved to New York City in 1904 and wrote a humorous column, Always in Good Humour, for the New York Evening Mail which ran for ten years. He then moved on to the New York Tribune in 1914 and began his now-famous column, The Coning Tower, which continued to run on various papers until 1941. During the First World War, Adams served in U.S. Army Military Intelligence and also wrote a column for Stars and Stripes. He returned to the Tribune after the war, but in 1922 moved on to the New York World where he continued until 1931 when he went back to the Tribune. During the 1920's, he was a member of the Algonquin Round Table at the Algonquin Hotel with such greats as Edna Ferber and Dorothy Parker. In 1937, he joined the New York Post and the following year became a panelist on the hit radio program Information Please. He stopped writing his column in 1941, but continued in radio for many more years. Adams suffered from Alzheimer's in later years and died in a nursing home. His works include In Cupid's Court (1902), Tobogganing on Parnassus (1911), In Other Words (1911) and The Melancholy Lute (1936).
