Ogden Nash

a.k.a. Frederick Ogden Nash

Author Code: AFON

Born: Aug. 19, 1902 - Rye, New York, USA

Died: May 19, 1971 - Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Educated at Harvard University, Nash dropped out of school after one year. Being an earlier graduate, he taught at St. George's School in Rhode Island for a year before returning to New York. He initially had an unsuccessful job as a bond salesman, but moved on to writing and became an editor of Doubleday Publishing. While there, he submitted some light verse to The New Yorker. Proving popular, he worked for them for a short time in 1931. That year, he also got married to Frances Leonard and published his first book of verse, Hard Lines. In 1934, the couple moved to Baltimore which became his home until his death. Over the next thirty years, his verse was the most popular in the U.S. and even serious anthologies of poetry would include his work. He was also the lyricist of the Broadway musical One Touch of Venus. Nash appeared on the 2002 US stamp. He was a master of the mis-spelled rhyme and humorous verse. His works include I'm a Stranger Here Myself (1938), Good Intentions (1942), Versus (1949), Private Dining Room (1952), You Can't Get There From Here (1957), Marriage Lines (1964), Bed Riddance (1969) and The Old Dog Barks Backwards (1972 Posthumous).
