Born in Stockton (Calif.) on September 6, 1894, Howard Pease began his writing career with a story written in 1907 while he was in the sixth grade. After graduating from Stanford University and working for a time as a merchant seaman, Pease published his first story in the June 1921 issue of "American Boy." His first published novel, "The Tattooed Man" (1926), was followed by twenty-one others. During most of his career Pease also taught high school English. He resided in the Bay Area until his death (1974). For additional data see: Jennings, Shirley May, "A study of the genesis of the twenty-two published children's novels, by Howard Pease," (unpublished doctoral dissertation, UOP, 1969).
