Biography

Thomas Nelson Page (b. Hanover County, Virginia, 1853-1922) was an American writer. He popularized the plantation tradition genre of Southern writing. His 1887 collection of short stories, In Ole Virginia, is the quintessential work of that genre. Another short-story collection is The Burial of the Guns (1894). A scion of the prominent Nelson and Page families, the Virginian attended Washington College and the University of Virginia in pursuit of a legal career. Page was a lawyer in Richmond from 1876 to 1893, when he moved to Washington. He kept up his writing, which amounted to eighteen volumes when they were compiled and published in 1912. Under Woodrow Wilson, Page served as ambassador to Italy for six years from 1913 to 1919. Italy and the World War (1920) is a memoir of his service there.
