A Note on Biographical Sources for California Novelists
Most of the novelists that have been treated in this book have not had the pleasure of a large critical following, of the sort that leads to the writing of book- length biographies that are widely accessible. Nonetheless, biographical notes on several of these novelists, including Stewart Edward White, Frederick Sanford, Horace Annesley Vachell, Theodore S. Van Dyke, and Harold Bell Wright, may be easily tracked down in popular histories of California literature and culture--for example, Kevin Starr ( 1981, 1985), Franklin Walker ( 1950), and Lawrence Clark Powell ( 1971, 1974). Russel Nye ( 1970) is also helpful. Unless otherwise noted in the main text, I have drawn upon biographical sources for the remainder of the authors as follows: William Chambers Morrow is treated in Burk and Howe ( 1972), Marquis ( 1900), Stewart ( 1951), and Hinkel ( 1942). He also earned a brief biographical essay in the Overland Monthly 41 ( 1883): 257. Entries on Frank Lewis Nason are to be found in Marquis ( 1900), Stewart ( 1951), Spence ( 1970), and Who's Who ( 1921). Burke and Howe ( 1972), Marquis ( 1900), Stewart ( 1951), and Hinkel ( 1942) include coverage of Joseph Allan Dunn. Ednah Aiken is discussed in Burke and Howe ( 1972) and is the subject of a short sketch in the Overland Monthly 81 ( 1923): 27.
