Humorist. Born in Paducah, Kentucky, he made his mark as a columnist in New York. He wrote over 60 books, but is probably best known for his humorous tales of Kentucky first seen in a collection of stories about a shrewd but kindly Kentucky judge in "Old Judge Priest" in 1915. Among his other books are "Speaking of Operations," "Back Home" and "Red Likker." (bio by: Iola)
