Edward Eggleston (1837-1902)
Author and historian, Eggleston discovered a knack for creative writing by contributing to a popular children's magazine. He moved to New York City, where he worked first as reviewer and editor. He wrote "The Hoosier School-Master," which became a bestseller in 1871. His finest novel, "Roxy" (1874), showed the influence of George Eliot. His oldest daughter's biographies of Native Americans motivated him to begin yet another career, as historian of the earliest stages of American settlement. In 1900 he was elected president of the American Historical Association.
