Short biography
Noel B. Gerson attended the University of Chicago and served as the campus stringer for the Chicago Herald-Examiner. After graduation, he became a reporter at the paper. He then joined WGN Radio as a publicity writer, later becoming talent director and scriptwriter. During World War II, he served in Army intelligence. After the war, he wrote television scripts before beginning his career as an author in 1950. He was a prolific and popular writer who produced some 325 works of history, historical fiction, and biographies under his own name and numerous pseudonyms. Among his specialties were books about colonial America and the western pioneers; presidents of the USA, such as Andrew Jackson, James Polk, and Theodore Roosevelt; and notable women in history such as the Byzantine Empress Theodora, Matilda of Flanders, and Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. Two of his novels, 55 Days at Peking and The Naked Maja, were adapted into films.
