Tom Grogan

Tom Grogan  (1896) 
by F. Hopkinson Smith
[Illustrated by Charles S. Rheinhart. Serialized in The Century magazine, 1895-1896, Tom Grogan was the bestselling book in 1896.]

"Is Mr. F. Hopkinson Smith a lawyer? We know him to be several other things—contractor, bridge builder, architect, besides an artist of no mean repute both with pen and pencil […] the skill with which he has pleaded the case of Tom Grogan vs. organised labour in general, and the Stevedores' Union in particular, would seem to argue a certain acquaintance with judicial methods and with the vulnerable points of the intelligent American juror. [...] Mr. Hopkinson Smith has done a fine piece of work in the delineation of this gallant Amazon [who takes on an organized labor gang]; a portrait (if one grant the outlines) entirely without exaggeration." —from a review in The Bookman, July 1896.
