CARL SANDBURG (1878-1967)
was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American poet, historian, novelist and folklorist.
Sandburg tried many occupations and fought in the Spanish-American War before moving to Chicago in 1913, where he worked in journalism. He won recognition in 1914 with poems, including "Chicago," perhaps his best-known work.
His free verse eulogizing American workers appeared in such volumes as "Smoke and Steel"(1920) and "The People, Yes" (1936). His other works include "Abraham Lincoln: The Prairie Years" (1926), "Abraham Lincoln: The War Years" (1939, Pulitzer Prize), "Remembrance Rock" (1948), and four children's books.
