HAROLD BELL WRIGHT
The religious author signs his name on this card in black ink
Autograph sentiment signed: "Sincerely yours/Harold Bell Wright/Tucson, Ariz." In black ink. 3¼x2. Harold Bell Wright (1872-1944) was a largely self-educated novelist who became the first American writer to earn over $1 million from his books alone. His most popular books, The Shepherd of the Hills (1907) and The Winning of Barbara Worth (1911), were among seven of his novels turned into films. Previously a minister, Wright attacked established churches in his books but promoted what he called "clean living." In a letter from the White House to Wright's daughter in law in 1984, President Reagan stated that as a youth he asked to be baptized after reading a published collection of Wright's sermons. Wright was also an early advocate of channeling the Colorado River to irrigate California's then desert-like Imperial Valley. Lightly toned. Corners rounded. Slightly soiled. Magazine photo of Bell seated with a dog near him affixed to front. Otherwise, fine condition.
