Educated in California and at Harvard, Willard Huntington Wright became editor of The Smart Set (1913-1914). After suffering a serious illness in 1925, he turned to writing detective novels under the pseudonym of "S. S. Van Dine". His papers consist of scrapbooks reflecting the professional and private life of Van Dine, including articles by and about him (1926-1930), reviews of his books, motion pictures, and radio plays, his literary and art criticism, and miscellaneous and general notes (1926-1937).
