Recognize Anyone?

The 1937 edition of Compton’s Pictured Encyclopedia devotes almost 12 whole pages to American Authors and What They Wrote. Several authors highlighted were deemed important enough to have their picture included.  Most of the names were familiar to me, but I have to admit there are a few I’ve never heard of, or perhaps I’ve just forgotten them.

What about you?  Which authors do you recognize in the gallery below? You may be surprised by what you don’t know.
