Day, Clarence

Day, Clarence (Shepard, Jr.)

(1874–1935) writer; born in New York City. He studied at Yale (B.A. 1896) before becoming a stockbroker and partner in his father's firm (1898). Soon after his service in the Spanish-American War (1898), he became progressively crippled by a form of arthritis. Forced to withdraw from the stockbrokerage business, he devoted himself to writing and illustrating. He wrote book reviews, stories, and verse, and was cofounder of the Yale Press, but is most famous for his humorous books based on his childhood memories, notably Life With Father (1935).
