Biography | show moreshow less
Owen Wister's novel, The Virginian (1902), established many of the archetypes of what became in the twentieth century the Western novel and hero (it includes, for example, the first showdown gun duel). Drafts of the novel had been read and corrected by Theodore Roosevelt, Wister's close friend and Harvard classmate. The TV series, The Virginian, was only very loosely based on Wister's novel. Many of Wister's other Western stories were illustrated by another classmate and fellow celebrant of the Old West, Frederick Remington. Wister (1860-1938) later wrote a book about his friendship with TR.
