American author and reformer. His first books - Old Creole Days (1879), a collection of stories, and The Grandissimes (1880), a novel - marked Creole New Orleans as his literary province and were widely praised. In these works he employed a realism new to Southern fiction. - Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature
