Illinois Connection

Ade lived and wrote in Chicago from 1890 to about 1902.

Biographical and Professional Information

George Ade wrote a popular newspaper column, "Stories of the Streets and of the Town," for the ''Chicago Record'' between 1890 and 1900. These columns were the basis of ''Artie'' (1896), ''Pink Marsh'' (1897) and ''Doc Horne'' (1899). Ade's greatest success, however, was ''Fables in Slang'' (1899), a collection of short sketches that satirized turn-of-the-century manners in breezy vernacular language. Eleven other collections of fables followed. Ade also was a successful writer of musical comedies, including ''The College Widow'' (1904).
