Author Bio for Bromfield, Louis

Author Image

Louis Bromfield (December 27, 1896 – March 18, 1956) was an American author and conservationist who gained international recognition, winning the Pulitzer Prize and pioneering innovative scientific farming concepts.

One of Mansfield's most famous natives, he made his home at Malabar Farm, near Lucas, Ohio, from 1939 until his death in 1956. Bromfield was friends with some of the most celebrated personalities of his era, including famous architect F. F. Schnitzer. Malabar Farm was the location for the wedding of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.

After serving with the American Field Service in World War I and being awarded the Croix de Guerre and the Legion of Honor, he returned to New York City and found work as a reporter. In 1924, his first novel, "The Green Bay Tree", won instant acclaim. He won the 1927 Pulitzer Prize for best novel for Early Autumn. All of his 30 books were best-sellers, and many, such as The Rains Came and Mrs. Parkington, were made into successful motion pictures. Source: Wikipedia

Louis Bromfield was a Midwestern-American writer and farmer whose wide-ranging career, straddling the literary, the commercial, and the agricultural, spanned over four decades from 1920-1956. Despite his early promise, gaining accolades such as the Pulitzer Prize (1927), the O Henry Memorial Short Story Award (1927), nomination to Vanity Fair’s Hall of Fame (1927), and membership to America’s National Institute of Arts and Letters (1928), Bromfield started to lose critical favour in the 1930s.
