About the Author
Author Carl SandburgCarl Sandburg was twice awarded the Pulitzer Prize, the first for History in 1940 for his six-volume biography of Abraham Lincoln, and the second for Poetry in 1951 for his Complete Poems. Born in Illinois of Swedish immigrant parents, Sandburg worked early in a wide variety of jobs, ranging from shoeshine-boy, milkman, fireman, and farmhand, to a soldier in the Spanish-American War. After college he went on to become a newspaperman, a political organizer, a collector of folk songs, author of children’s books, lecturer, poet and historian. The son of a man who could not write his own name, Carl Sandburg went on to write over thirty books and earned the title in America of “The Poet of the People.”
