Edward Streeter (1891–1976) started his career as the World War I correspondent and travel writer for the Buffalo Express. He grew famous for his “Dere Mable” letters, a humorous column which was serialized between 1917 and 1919 and which were collected and published in two books, Dere Mable and Thats Me All Over, Mable. After the war, Streeter became a successful businessman. Yet he continued to write short stories for magazines, and later, bestselling novels. His most successful novel is Father of the Bride. Other notable works include Merry Christmas, Mr. Baxter (1956); Chairman of the Bored (1961); Along the Ridge (1964); and Ham Martin, Class of '17 (1969).
