    About "Horatio Alger Jr."

    1. Horatio Alger Jr.

      Horatio Alger, Jr January 13, 1832 July 18, 1899 was a prolific 19th century American author, most famous for his novels following the adventures of bootblacks, newsboys, peddlers, buskers, and other impoverished children in their rise from humble backgrounds to lives of respectable middle class security and comfort His novels about boys who succeed under the tutelage of older mentors were hugely popular in their day.Born in Chelsea, Massachusetts, the son of a Unitarian minister, Alger entered Harvard University at the age of sixteen Following graduation, he briefly worked in education before touring Europe for almost a year He then entered the Harvard Divinity School, and, in 1864, took a position at a Unitarian church in Brewster, Massachusetts Two years later, he resigned following allegations he had sexual relations with two teenage boys 1 He retired from the ministry and moved to New York City where he formed an association with the Newsboys Lodging House and other agencies offering aid to impoverished children His sympathy for the working boys of the city, coupled with the moral values learned at home, were the basis of his many juvenile rags to riches novels illustrating how down and out boys might be able to achieve the American Dream of wealth and success through hard work, courage, determination, and concern for others This widely held view involves Alger s characters achieving extreme wealth and the subsequent remediation of their old ghosts Alger is noted as a significant figure in the history of American cultural and social ideals He died in 1899.The first full length Alger biography was commissioned in 1927 and published in 1928, and along with many others that borrowed from it later proved to be heavily fictionalized parodies perpetuating hoaxes and made up anecdotes that would resemble the tell all scandal biographies of the time 2 Other biographies followed, sometimes citing the 1928 hoax as fact In the last decades of the twentieth century a few reliable biographies were published that attempt to correct the errors and fictionalizations of the past.For information, please see answers topic horatio
