DHAN GOPAL MUKERJI (1890-1936) was an Indian intellect and author who studied in the United States, Scotland, and Japan, hoping to spread the culture and ideas of India to the Western world. Graduating from Standford with a metaphysics degree, Mukerji began writing prolifically in the 1920's while in New York, publishing works (mostly children's books) like Kari the Elephant and the Newberry Medal winning Gay Neck, the Story of a Pigeon. Many of his books, including his adult novels, drew upon his life in India and brought an unseen world to foreign audiences.
