Author Biography: Lois ShirleyMorePhilander Deming (1826-1915) was one of the great practitioners of the short, local color story. Lois Shirley Crayton shows how Deming employed real events in his own life as the basis for his Adirondack tales. Author Biography: Lois Shirley Crayton has been interested in local and family history for most of her ninety-seven years. Her explorations of Philander Deming began during her graduate work at Indiana University under the mentorship of Frank Davidson, Professor of English there. Her favorite literary form remains the witty, perceptive, and revealing short story of regional Americana. Still actively involved in letter-writing—especially letters-to-the-editor regarding social and educational issues—she continues to train her keen understanding and wit on modern American life.
