Short biography
Howard R. Garis was a reporter for the Evening News in Newark, New Jersey. He, along with his wife, Lilian, also a writer and the first newspaperwoman in New Jersey, and their two grown children, wrote adventure stores under various names for juvenile literature syndicator Edward L. Stratemeyer. Fortune magazine dubbed then "The Writing Garises" in 1934. They wrote more than 500 titles, and all or part of a dozen series, including Tom Swift, The Bobbsey Twins, and Baseball Joe. E. M. Scudder asked Garis to write children's stories for the Evening News, and these became the Uncle Wiggily Longears series, which Lilian Garis continued after her husband's death in 1962. [adapted from Favorite Uncle Wiggily Animal Bedtime Stores, introduction (1998)]
