About the author (1979)

Samuel Hopkins Adams was born on January 26, 1871 in Dunkirk, N.Y. He graduated from Hamilton College in 1891. He was a reporter for the New York Sun and McClure's Magazine where his articles focused on the the conditions of public health in the United States. He also wrote a series of eleven articles in Collier's Weekly exposing patent medicines and accusing their producers of making false claims and in some cases, damaging the health of their users. These articles were a huge influence on the passage of the first Pure Food and Drugs Act. He not only wrote for magazines, he also wrote fiction and nonfiction. His most popular novel, Revelry was based on the scandals of the Harding administration. His other titles include The Harvey Girls, The Grandfather Stories, and Tenderloin. Adams died Nov. 15, 1958 in Beaufort, South Carolina.
