Death: May 22, 1898

Author. Edward Bellamy worked briefly in the newspaper industry in New York City, New York and in Springfield, Massachusetts. He left journalism to devote himself completely to literature, writing both short stories and novels. His books include "Dr. Heidenhoff's Process" (1880), "Miss Ludington's Sister" (1884), "The Duke of Stockbridge" (1900), and the novels "Looking Backward: 2000—1887" (1888), and its sequel, "Equality" (1897). By far, his most popular was considered the prophetic "Looking Backwards: 2000-1887", a fiction based on Utopian principles. By 1900, the only book that had sold more copies was "Uncle Tom's Cabin". His writings spawned a movement called Bellamy Nationalist Clubs in 1888 and a political movement that came to be known as Nationalism. The movement attracted such notable authors as William Dean Howells and Edward Everett Hale. Although Bellamy traveled far and wide, he never moved from the home in Chicopee Falls in which he was born. He died there of tuberculosis at the age of 48 leaving a wife and two children. The home has been designated a National Historic Landmark in 1971 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. (bio by: Dave Robison)
