Christopher Morley

a.k.a. Christopher Darlington Morley

Author Code: ACDM

Born: May 5, 1890 - Haverford, Pennsylvania, USA

Died: Mar. 28, 1957 - Long Island, New York, USA

Educated at Haverford College and New College, Oxford, where he was a Rhodes Scholar, Morley worked as a newspaper reporter and columnist for various papers in Philadelphia and New York City. His first publication, The Eighth Sin, a volume of poems, appeared in 1912. From 1917-1918 he edited the Ladies' Home Journal. His first novel, Parnassus on Wheels appeared in 1917 and in 1919, he published The Haunted Bookshop, which became a best-seller. He was one of the founders of the Saturday Review of Literature and he also served as its editor for sixteen years. In 1934, he formed the Baker Street Irregulars, for devotees of Arthur Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes. In 1939, he published Kitty Foyle, a controversial work that became a best-seller and an Academy Award-winning film. Morley suffered a series of strokes in 1951 that left him debilitated and his work was curtailed. His other works include Pipefuls (1920), Where the Blue Begins (1922), Thunder on the Left (1925), John Mistletoe (1931), Human Being (1931), BR's Secret Passion (1935), History of an Autumn (1938), Middle Kingdom Poems (1944) and The Man Who Made Friends With Himself (1949).
