His early writings were in those disciplines. However, he won greater success as a humorist noted for his essays, parodies and short stories. His best known works include his masterpiece Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town (1912), Literary Lapses (1910), Nonsense Novels (1911) and Arcadian Adventures with the Idle Rich (1914). He wrote biographies of Samuel L. Clemens (1932) and Charles Dickens (1933). McGill's only child, Stephen L. Leacock, was born in 1915. His wife Trix had died in 1925. Two items.
