Nicholson, Meredith: A Hoosier Chronicle. V1. 23 Jan 2009

Meredith Nicholson (9 December 1866 – 22 December 1947) was a best-selling author from Indiana, United States, a politician, and a diplomat.
Nicholson was born on 9 December 1866 in Crawfordsville, Indiana, to Edward Willis Nicholson and the former Emily Meredith. Largely self-taught, Nicholson began a newspaper career in 1884 at the Indianapolis Sentinel. He moved to the Indianapolis News the following year, where he remained until 1897.
He wrote Short Flights in 1891, and continued to publish extensively, both poetry and prose until 1928. During the first quarter of the 20th century, Nicholson, along with Booth Tarkington, George Ade, and James Whitcomb Riley helped to create a Golden Age of literature in Indiana. Three of his books from that era were national best sellers:
The House of a Thousand Candles (#4 in 1906)
The Port of Missing Men (#3 in 1907)
A Hoosier Chronicle (#5 in 1912)
In 1928, Nicholson entered Democratic party politics, and served for two years as a city councilman in Indianapolis. He rose through the ranks of the Democratic party and was rewarded with appointments as Envoy to Paraguay, Venezuela, and Nicaragua.
Nicholson died on 22 December 1947 in Indianapolis, aged 81, and is buried in the Crown Hill Cemetery.

Considered by many to be his best work, the novel examines Indiana society and politics at the turn of the century. The book begins: Sylvia was reading in her grandfather's library when the bell tinkled. Professor Kelton had few callers, and as there was never any certainty that the maid-of-all-work would trouble herself to answer, Sylvia put down her book and went to the door. Very likely it was a student or a member of the faculty, and as her grandfather was not at home Sylvia was quite sure that the interruption would be the briefest.

Thanks. I've just moved to the Louisville area of Indiana. This should be interesting.
