Short biography
Arthur Meeker, Jr.'s father was general manager of Armour & Co., and his mother came from a well-known Chicago family. Much of Meeker's published work focused on the interaction of business, conservative politics, and social life in Chicago. Meeker studied playwriting in college but never graduated. He wrote society and travel items for Chicago newspapers and magazines before finding success as a novelist with several highly regarded historical works. His best-known novel was The Ivory Mischief, which recreated life among 17th century French aristocrats. He also travelled extensively in Europe and bought a chalet in Switzerland where he spent part of each year.
