He was born in Rye, New York, lived and worked in various places and his answer to where he lived is best answered in his own words: * 'I could have loved New York, had I not loved Balti-more.' He died in the city he lived in and loved on 19 May 1971. He went to Baltimore to take a job writing street-car advertising, a job that had been held by F. Scott Fitgerald. His often mocked poetry included such dandies as: * 'Candy is dandy But liquor Is quicker' and * 'The Cow is of the Bovine Ilk, One end is moo, the other milk.' Though not a bard like Shakespear, he certainly had a way with words.
