Richard Powell

Richar Powell was born in Philadelphia in 1908. After graduating from Princeton University in 1930, he decided that the way to be a writer was to get a job on a newspaper. He went to work for the Philadelphia Evening Ledger where he stayed for ten years. In 1940, he left the newspaper to join the public relations department of N. W. Ayer & Son, an advertising agency. After World War II he went back to the agency, and in 1952 he became vice-president in charge of Information Services. He held that post until 1958 when he resigned to devote full time to writing. Mr. Powell is the author of ten mysteries an many novels, including The Philadelphian, Pioneer, Go Home!, The Soldier, and I Take This Land. He and his wife live in Fort Myers, Florida, in the winter, and Brant Beach, New Jersey, in the summer.
