Lyman Frank Baum (1856-1919) was born in Chittenango, New York, and was tutored at home in his early years along with his siblings. He went to the Peekskill Military Academy at the age of twelve and returned two years later after a health crisis. He began writing at a young age. His first book, The Book of the Hamburgs: A Brief Treatise upon the Mating, Rearing, and Management of the Different Varieties of Hamburgs, was published in 1886. Two years later, he moved to Aberdeen, Dakota Territory, where he worked as a journalist. He moved to Chicago in 1891 and began working for the Evening Post. After working as a journalist and businessman, Baum began writing stories for children. Mother Goose in Prose, a collection of twenty-two children’s stories, was published in 1897. In 1899, he published Father Goose: His Book. This collection of nonsense poetry for children was a great success. The next year, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was published by the George M. Hill Company. Following its success, Baum wrote thirteen more novels in the series. Glinda of Oz, his last book in the Oz series, was published in July 1920. A storyteller par excellence, Baum continues to be remembered for his timeless children’s stories.
