•   Great words said by him
• Author Ernest Hemingway was born on July 21,
  1899, in the village of Oak Park, Illinois, close
  to the prairies and woods west of Chicago.
  Both here and in Michigan, he would explore,
  camp, fish and hunt with his physician father,
  Dr. Clarence "Ed" Hemingway..
• Both parents and their
  nearby families fostered
  the Victorian priorities of
  the time: religion, family,
  work and discipline. They
  followed the Victorians'
  elaborate sentimental style
  in living and writing. At
  Oak Park and River Forest
  High     School,     Ernest
  reported and wrote articles,
  poems and stories for the
  school's       publications
  largely based on his direct
  experiences.

• The year Ernest graduated he began
  reporting for the Kansas City Star. Here he
  learned to get to the heart of a story with
  direct, simple sentences. After entering
  World War I the following year, he was
  wounded near the Italian/Austrian front.
  Hospitalized, he fell in love with his nurse,
  who later called off their relationship. These
  dramatic personal events against the
  backdrop of a brutal war became the basis
  of Hemingway's first widely successful novel,
  A Farewell to Arms, published in the
  following decade.
• In Europe in the 1920's ,
  Ernest learned from avant-
  garde writers like Gertrude
  Stein and Ezra Pound
  their literary spareness
  and compression.
  Hemingway used these
  methods in short stories
  and novels that captured
  the attention of both critics
  and the public.

• "Through his literary
  friends, he met and fell
  in love with another tall,
  lovely young woman,
  Hadley Richardson. She
  was eight years older
  than Hemingway..."
       Pauline Marie Pfeiffer
• "Pauline was a well-
  educated, devout
  Catholic with a great job,
  a huge trust fund, and
  countless, more
  suitable, admirers."
     Martha Ellis Gellhorn
• "Gellhorn's
  marriage to
  hemingway lasted
  five years, ending
  when Gellhorn left
  Hemingway, the
  only of his wives to
  do so."
            Mary Welsh
• "...a stunning
  blond journalist
  from Minnesota..."
