Серия: "-"

1900. Hamlin Garland was born near La Crosse, Wisconsin and lived in the area for nine years before his family moved to South Dakota. As an adult helived in major cities throughout the United States but visited his birthplace often. In 1922 he received a Pulitzer Prize for A Daughter of the Middle Border, and was also director of the American Academy of Arts and Letters for a number of years. The Eagle’s Heart begins: Harold was about ten years of age when his father, the Rev. Mr. Excell, took the pastorate of the First Church in Rock River. Many of the people in his first congregation remarked upon the handsome lad. The clear brown on his face, his big yellow-brown eyes, his slender hands, and the grace of his movements gave him distinction quite aside from that arising from his connection with the minister.

Hamlin Garland

Hamlin Hannibal Garland (September 14, 1860March 4, 1940) was an American novelist, poet, essayist, and short story writer. He is best known for his fiction involving hard-working Midwestern farmers. [ [ Garland, Hamlin 1860 - 1940 ] ]


Born in West Salem, Wisconsin, he lived on various Midwestern farms throughout his young life, but he settled in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1884 to pursue a career in writing. His first success came in 1891 with "Main-Traveled Roads", a collection of short stories inspired by his days on the farm. He serialized a biography of Ulysses S. Grant in "McClure's Magazine" before publishing it as a book in 1898. The same year, Garland traveled to the Yukon to witness the Klondike Gold Rush, which inspired "The Trail of the Gold Seekers" (1899).

A prolific writer, Garland continued to publish novels, short fiction, and essays. In 1917, he published his autobiography, "A Son of the Middle Border". The book's success prompted a sequel, "A Daughter of the Middle Border", for which Garland won the 1922 Pulitzer Prize for Biography. After two more volumes, Garland began a second series of memoirs based on his diary.

Garland died at age seventy-nine, after moving to Hollywood, California, where he devoted his remaining years to investigating psychic phenomena, an enthusiasm he first undertook in 1891. He was buried in Neshonoc Cemetery in West Salem, Wisconsin. In his final book, "The Mystery of the Buried Crosses" (1939), he tried to defend such phenomenon and prove the legitimacy of psychic mediums.

Hamlin Garland lived on a farm between Osage, and St. Ansgar, Iowa for quite some time. Many of his writings are based on this era of his life.

The Hamlin Garland House in West Salem is a historical site.
