The New Student's Reference Work/White, Stewart Edward
White, Stewart Edward, an American author and story-writer who deals chiefly with western life, was born at Grand Rapids, Mich., on March 12, 1873. He entered the University of Michigan, from which he graduated in 1895, subsequently taking a course at Columbia Law School, New York City. Some years later he developed gifts as a novelist and successively published The Claim Jumpers, The Westerners, The Blazed Trail, Conjurer's House, The Forest, The Magic Forest, The Silent Places, The Mountains, Blazed Trail Stories, The Pass and The Mystery, the last in conjunction with S.
