Sherwood Anderson - LIFE STORIES
 
 
3/8/1941     "Elyria Manufacturer Dies"
On this day in 1941 Sherwood Anderson died in Panama at the age of 64, of peritonitis brought on by swallowing a toothpick in an hors d'oeuvre. At age 36, Anderson threw over his life as a successful businessman in Elyria, Ohio to become, according to William Faulkner, "the father of my generation of American writers."

"In the 1920s, author and social critic H. L. Mencken called him 'America's Most Distinctive Novelist.' Anderson was also a poet and a playwright, a newspaper editor and a political journalist. ... As a writer, Anderson is obscured by the generation of writers that followed him, by Hemingway and Faulkner especially, both of whom he helped to get started."
