Biography
Ellis Butler (1869-1937) is probably best known for the 1905 short story Pigs Is Pigs. (Butler may have thought that he was a little too well known for it; according to his New York Times obituary, "he often complained that his name never appeared in print without the phrase 'author of Pigs Is Pigs'") (Like here, incidentally) He wrote 32 books and over 2,000 stories over 40 years, in spite of the fact that he was only a part-time writer. Yes! He worked for a living, first as a magazine publisher and then as a banker. Seven of his books, stories and scenarios were turned into movies; Pigs Is Pigs was adapted twice, in 1914 and 1954. He was also a founder member of the Dutch Treat Club and Author's League of America.
