Edgar Lee Masters was an American poet, novelist and biographer born in Kansas and reared in the "Spoon River country" of Illinois.

He settled in Chicago in 1892 and practiced law; in 1921 Masters moved to New York to concentrate full time on his writing. His literary fame dates from the publication of the Spoon river anthology in 1914. Masters greatly admired Agnes Lee (Mrs. Otto Freer), a published and prize-winning Chicago poet associated with Harriet Monroe and Poetry magazine.
