Edwin Markham *

a.k.a. Charles Edward Anson Markham

Author Code: AEDM

Born: Apr. 23, 1852 - Oregon City, Oregon, USA

Died: Mar. 7, 1940 - Brooklyn, New York, USA

Educated at the California College at Vacaville, Markham obtained a teacher's certificate in 1870. He then studied at San Jose State Normal School and Christian College in Santa Rosa where he completed his studies of the classics. He taught literature until 1879 when he was appointed education superintendent of El Dorado county. In 1890, he became the principal of Tompkins Observation School at Oakland. It was at this time that he met and became friends with many of California's leading authors including Joaquin Miller and Charles Warren Stoddard. In 1899, his first book of poetry, The Man With the Hoe and Other Poems, appeared to critical acclaim. His best work, Lincoln and Other Poems, was published in 1901 and his Lincoln, the Man of the People, was selected to be read at the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. in 1922. In 1910, he founded the Poetry Society of America. In 1923, he was named Poet Laureate of Oregon and held that position until 1931. Markham also wrote essays and prose in addition to his volumes of poetry. His other works include The Shoes of Happiness and Other Poems (1913), Children in Bondage (1914), California the Wonderful (1914), Gates of Paradise (1920), Eighty Poems at Eighty (1932) and The Ballad of the Gallows Bird (1960 Posthumous).
