Born: February 9, 1866 in Kentland, Indiana
Died: May 16, 1944 in Brook, Indiana Connection to Illinois: Ade lived and wrote in Chicago from 1890 to about 1902. Biography: 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).

|The Girl Proposition
ISBN: B010R2WH7E OCLC: R. H. Russell 1903 More fables from humorist George Ade. These (subtitled A Bunch of He and She Fables), focus on the ever-challenging relationship between men and women. As the author states, "The Girl Proposition contains so many kinds of Human Endeavor that it has been found inadvisable to treat the Subject exhaustively in a mere Pocket Guide. The Purpose of this Volume shall have been accomplished if Students are aroused to a keener Interest in the sprightly Topic and feel encouraged to undertake Original Research, verifying by Experiment the Conclusions herewith set down." The illustrations, in imitation of the old-style woodcuts, are by John T. McCutcheon, Frank Holme, Carl Werntz, and Clyde J. Newman. 192 pages.
|The old-time saloon :
ISBN: 9780226412306 OCLC: 944087067 Fancy a tipple? Then pull up a stool, raise a glass, and dip into this delightful paean to the grand old saloon days of yore. Written by Chicago-based journalist, playwright, and all-round wit George Ade in the waning years of Prohibition, The Old-Time Saloon is both a work of propaganda masquerading as “just history” and a hilarious exercise in nostalgia. Featuring original, vintage illustrations along with a new introduction and notes from Bill Savage, Ade's book takes us back to the long-gone men’s clubs of earlier days, when beer was a nickel, the pretzels were polished, and the sardines were free.
