Eugene Field was a midwestern American journalist, humorist, and poet. His style was irreverent, witty, and sharp, and both his columns and collections of his columns were very popular. Perhaps his most lasting achievements were columns written to popularize book collecting, which have influenced bibliophiles ever since, and his efforts to promote reading as a popular activity.

Eugene Field was born in St Louis (Mo.) on Sept. 3, 1850, the son of Roswell Martin Field and his wife, Frances Field. Roswell was a well-known attorney who in 1853 served as the attorney for the slaves Dred and Harriet Scott and their daughters, Eliza and Lizzy, who sued in federal court for their freedom. Ultimately, the slaves were not recognized as citizens by the US Supreme Court, an action believed by many to precipitate the Civil War. Following their mother's death in Nov. 1856, Eugene and his brother, Roswell, were sent to Amherst (Mass.) in 1857 to attend school and live with an aunt and cousin until the boys entered college. Later, Eugene attended the University of Mo., where he co-founded and edited the Mis-sourian, a campus newspaper. In May 1873 Field joined the staff of the St. Louis Journal. In Oct. 1874 he married Julia Sutherland Comstock in St. Joseph (Mo.). Field's career as a newspaper writer took him between St. Joseph and St. Louis (Mo.), Kansas City, Denver, and Chicago, where he worked for the Chicago Daily News, later the Record. He wrote a column "Sharps and Flats", with humor, political commentary and children's verse, which established his reputation as a writer. He also wrote a number of books, including: A little book of western verse (1889); Echoes from the Sabien farm (with his brother) (1892); the Denver Tribune primer; Culture's garland; Love affairs of a bibliomaniac; and With trumpet and drum. A poet of rare sympathy, Field wrote only children's poems. His most famous children's poems include "Little boy blue" and "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod." His poems earned him the title "The Children's Poet". At the age of 45, while at the height of his career, Field died in his sleep on Nov. 4, 1895. He was survived by his five children and widow. His body was buried in the churchyard of the Church of the Holy Comforter in Kenilworth (Ill.) (Information from the collection.).

Biography

Eugene Field (1850-1895), American poet and journalist, was born and raised in St. Louis and in 1873 he married Julia Sutherland Comstock, also of Missouri. Before marrying Julia Comstock, Field took an extended trip to Europe and on his return he began working for a number of newspapers around the country, including St. Louis, Kansas City, Denver, and Chicago.

From the guide to the Eugene Field Papers, 1872-1899, (The Huntington Library)

Eugene Field, American author, was born in St. Louis, Missouri on September 2, 1850. After the death of their mother in 1856, Eugene and his younger brother Roswell were placed under the care of a cousin, Mary Field French, of Amherst, Massachusetts. Field spent the remainder of his boyhood in the eastern United States, attending for a time a private school at Monson, Massachusetts. In the autumn of 1868 he began his advanced studies at Williams College. After the death of his father the following summer, Field moved back to the Midwest and entered Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. Upon completion of a less than profitable year at Knox, he changed schools once again, joining his brother at the University of Missouri. Failing in his final attempt to receive a degree, he went abroad in the autumn of 1872, spending the greater portion of a substantial inheritance from his father. Upon his return to the States a year later, he married Julia Sutherland Comstock of St. Joseph, Missouri. Turning to newspaper work, Field held successive positions of the St. Joseph's Gazette, the St. Louis Journal, the Kansas City Times, and the Denver Tribune. In 1883 he joined the editorial staff of the Chicago Morning News (later renamed the Chicago Record), where he quickly became known for his editorial column "Sharps and Flats." Field remained with the News until his death on November 4, 1895.

While working for the News, Field gained considerable recognition as a poet and author. He is most popularly known, perhaps, for his poems of childhood and Christmas-time, including "Little Boy Blue," "A Dutch Lullaby," and "Wynken, Blyken, and Nod." Although most of Field's important writings appeared first in the newspapers he worked for, he did manage to publish several books of poetry and prose during his lifetime. His first booklet, The Tribune Primer, appeared in 1882 followed by Culture's Garland (1887); A Little Book of Western Verse (1889); A Little Book of Profitable Tales (1890); With Trumpet and Drum (1892); A Second Book of Verse (1892); Echoes from the Sabine Farm (1892); The Holy Cross and Other Tales (1893); and Love Songs of Childhood (1894).

Eugene Field (1850-1895) was an American author, journalist, and editor, best remembered for his children's poems such as "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod."

Eugene Field was born in September 1850 to Roswell and Frances (Reed) Field. Field's father was an attorney in St. Louis, Missouri and served as legal counsel to Dred Scott during the Dred Scott Case, 1846-1857 (Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857)). When Field was six years old, his mother died and Field and his brother, Roswell Jr. were placed in the custody of his cousin, Mary Field French in Massachusetts.

After attending several different colleges including Williams College, Knox College, and the University of Missouri, Field travelled abroad to Great Britain, France, and Italy with a friend. Upon returning from Europe, Field married Julia Sutherland Comstock on October 16, 1873, with whom he had eight children.

During this time Field began exploring editorial careers, working for several newspapers such as the St. Joseph Gazette, St. Louis' Journal, Kansas City Times, and Denver Tribune . In 1883, Field was hired at the Morning News where he would spend the rest of his career.

Field died suddenly on November 4, 1895 at his home in Buena Park, Chicago at the age of 45.

Among the important figures in American journalism during the Gilded Age, Eugene Field stands out for his originality, productivity and energy, as well as for his odd and occasionally outrageous sense of humor. A native westerner of New England extraction, Field made efforts -- only partially successful -- to study at Williams College, Knox College, and the University of Missouri, before leaving behind his education in 1873 to marry sixteen year old Julia Sutherland Comstock. While it cannot be said that Field's marriage sobered him up, it provided him with a partner to share in his eccentricities and to watch over his finances that were perpetually imperiled by his headlong rush into any number of new enthusiasms.

Having disposed of the remnants of a once substantial inheritance on his wedding trip, Field turned to newspaper editing to earn a living. Climbing the journalistic ladder through Saint Joseph, Saint Louis, and Kansas City, Mo., and Denver, Colo., Field arrived at the apex of his profession in 1883 when he joined the staff of the Chicago Morning News. His editorial column, "Sharps and Flats," earned him a wide readership, providing an original concoction of serious poetry and prose leavened with broad doses of humor, whimsy and satire. As his column drew a larger and larger readership, Field basked in the light of minor celebrity, becoming a much sought-after speaker on the lecture circuit, and a best-selling author of light verse, serious poetry and prose. After moving to Chicago, he indulged an increasingly serious interest in collecting rare books and fine printing, and wrote two popular works on the subject, including a posthumously-published "imaginary autobiography," Love Affairs of a Bibliomaniac . Although suffering from ill health for many years, Field's productivity continued unabated up to the day of his death in 1895. Julia and eight of their children survived him.
