Albert Bigelow Paine was born in New Bedford, Mass., but grew up in the Midwest. For ten years he sold photographic supplies in Fort Scott, Kan., but the sale of a story to Harper's weekly led to his move to New York City to pursue a writing career. He wrote biographies of William Allen White, Thomas Nast, and others, as well as several novels. He is best known for his three-volume biography of Mark Twain, 1912, and for editing Twain's letters, 1917. From 1899 to 1909, Paine also served as an editor of St. Nicholas, a prestigious children's magazine.
