Irvin S Cobb

Irvin S CobbShrewsbury, Irvin Cobb (June 23, 1876 - March 11, 1944) was a Paducah, Kentucky-born author, humorist, editor, and columnist who moved to New York in 1904 and lived there for the rest of his life. As the highest-paid staff reporter in the United Stats, he worked for Joseph Pulitzer's newspaper, the New York World. Cobb also published almost 60 books and 300 short tales. Some of his works were made into silent films. Several of his Judge Priest short stories were adapted for two feature films directed by John Ford in the 1930s. Cobb was the second of four children born in Paducah, Kentucky, to Kentucky natives. Reuben Saunders, M.D., is credited with finding in 1873 that injections of morphine-atropine were effective in treating cholera. Cobb grew up in Paducah, and many of his later works were inspired by events and people from his upbringing. Cobb was afterwards dubbed the "Duke of Paducah." Cobb attended public and private elementary schools before enrolling in William A. Cade's Academy to study law. Cobb's father became an alcoholic when he was 16, following the death of his grandfather. Cobb began his writing career after being forced to drop out of school and find jobs. Read More Read Less
