Irving Bacheller

Irving Bacheller (9-26-1859ó2-24-1950) was born in Pierpoint, NY and graduated from St. Lawrence University in 1882, which later granted him two honorary Masters and two Doctorial degrees. He took a temporary job at the Daily Hotel Reporter, and then went to work for the Brooklyn Daily Times. In 1885 he established the Bachelor Syndicate which provided specialized articles for major Sunday newspapers, through which he brought to American audiences the works of great British authors such as Arthur Conan Doyle, Rudyard Kipling and Joseph Conrad. He also established a partnership with young American author, Stephen Crane whose Civil War epic, Red Badge of Courage, appeared in syndication, thus becoming popular. Later he served as a war correspondent in Cuba during its insurrection against Spain.

Bacheller authored 30 books including Eben Holden: a Tale of the North Country, the fourth best-selling U.S. novel in 1900, Díri and I, tenth best seller for 1901, and The Light in the Clearing which was the number two best-selling book in the U.S. in 1920. A Man for the Ages was fifth.
