John Dos Passos

a.k.a. John Roderigo Dos Passos

Author Code: AJDP

Born: Jan. 14, 1896 - Chicago, Illinois, USA

Died: Sep. 28, 1970 - Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Educated at Harvard University, Dos Passos volunteered for service in World War I after graduating in 1916. He served as an ambulance driver in France and because of his experiences became a dedicated leftist. Two of his early novels, One Man's Initiation (1917) and Three Soldiers (1922), draw on those war experiences. A political activist throughout his youth, Dos Passos was briefly imprisoned for demonstrating in support of Sacco and Vanzetti in the 1920's. In 1925, he published Manhattan Transfer, which was hugely successful and established his literary credentials. Beginning in 1930, Dos Passos began the publication of his USA trilogy comprising The 42nd Parallel (1930), 1919 (1932) and The Big Money (1936). By the 1930's he had altered his political views and became more conservative. He served as a war correspondent for Life Magazine during World War II. In 1947, he was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. It was also this year that he was involved in an auto accident that left his wife dead and the loss of sight in one of his eyes. Other well-known works include State of the Nation (1944), The Ground We Stand On (1949), Chosen Country (1951), District of Columbia (1952), Most Likely to Succeed (1954), Prospects of a Golden Age (1959), Midcentury (1961), Mr. Wilson's War (1962) and The Shackles of Power (1966).
