Robert E. Sherwood

a.k.a. Robert Emmet Sherwood

Author Code: ARES

Born: Apr. 4, 1896 - New Rochelle, New York, USA

Died: Nov. 4, 1955 - New York City, New York, USA

From an eminent family, Sherwood was educated at Milton Academy and Harvard University and worked on the Lampoon at the latter. He left before graduation to enlist in the army in 1917. He joined the Canadian Black Watch Battalion and took part in battles in France, where he was gassed. Discharged in 1919, Sherwood joined the staff of Vanity Fair magazine and, with his colleagues Dorothy Parker and Robert Benchley, formed the Algonquin Round Table. The following year he joined Life magazine as an associate editor, becoming editor in 1924. In 1927, he published his first play, The Road to Rome, which was very successful. Probably his best-known play, The Petrified Forest, made its debut in 1935 and was made into a highly successful film. In 1938, Sherwood and others formed the Playwright's Company, a production company that became a major force in the industry. Sherwood worked as a speechwriter for Franklin D. Roosevelt and was a special assistant to the secretary of war in 1940, and to the secretary of the navy in 1945. He won the Pulitzer Prize on three occasions. His output diminished following the war. His other works include The Love Nest (1927), Waterloo Bridge (1930), Idiot's Delight (1936), Abe Lincoln in Illinois (1938), There Shall Be No Night (1940), The Rugged Path (1945), The Best Years of Our Lives (1946), Roosevelt and Hopkins: An Intimate History (1948) and Miss Liberty (1949).
