Ade, George

Ade, George
   The popular author of light dramatic satires as well as non-dramatic writing in various genres grew up on a farm near Kentland, Indiana, where he was born. He graduated from Purdue University in 1887 and joined the staff of the Chicago News-Record in 1890 (until 1900), then traveled abroad on royalties from his books. His twenty or so plays (some lost), all written during the 1900s, included one-act comedies, musicals like The Sultan of Sulu (1902) and The Sho-Gun (1904), and college plays like The College Widow (1904) with its lampoon of Wabash College in Craw-fordsville, Indiana.
