Author Bio for Stead, Robert James Campbell

Author Image

Robert James Campbell Stead was an author of whom Manitobans may well be proud, because the twelve books he wrote and and published, between the years of 1908 and 1931, fill an important niche in Manitoba's literary Hall of Fame.

His career as a writer started in 1892, when at the age of 12 he began sending contribution to Winnipeg periodicals like the Western Homes Monthly.

His first book, "The Empire Builders and Other Poems" was published by Williams Briggs in 1908, and for the next 23 years, until 1931, he continued a steady flow of novels, short stories and books of verse, which enriched the portraiture of Canadian prairie life.

In addition to his books, Stead wrote numerous magazine articles, short stories and speeches, and contributed to "The Magnet" published by J.D. McAra, Calgary, Alberta.--southernmanitobareview.com.
