Frederick Irving Anderson

Frederick Irving Anderson (18771947) was an American journalist and short story writer, born in Illinois. He wrote many short stories for magazines. He published two books on farming and only three works of fiction during his lifetime, leaving most of his stories uncollected in magazines. Both his 'anti-hero' characters Godahl and Sophie Lang (which became a movie series) manage to outwit the law.

He was previously married to Emma de Zouche and on her death relocated to Vermont. He died on 24 December 1947 in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA.
