Sinclair Lewis
Mar, 1914
Sinclair Lewis (1885 - 1951) was an American novelist and playwright. In 1930, he became the first American to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Lewis wrote a letter to his friend Clarence Darrow dated April 7, 1926 in which he said "This noon I talked it all over with Burris Jenkins and we agreed that the lady who tried to assassinate Mussolini had a good idea but she would have contributed much more to human progress if she had taken a shot at you instead."
