EAF Author: Charles Farrar Browne (1834-1867)
Charles Farrar Browne , also known as Artemus Ward, was born in Maine in 1834. His career began as a printer for the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Using the Ward pseudonym, however, Browne quickly became successful as a humorist — first as a letter-writer and then as a traveling lecturer. He is considered part of the American "unlettered" style of humor which also includes Mark Twain. Browne died in 1867 of tuberculosis while touring England.
