FEATURE 1: ERBzine 1328
Waiting For A Train: ERB's Practice Run At His Career:
         Minidoka 937th Earl of One Mile Series M 
by R. E. Prindle
The question is why did Edgar Rice Burroughs delay his writing career 
until he was thirty-five and what prompted him to begin? 
The basis of ERB's character was formed on a street corner in 
Chicago in 1885 when he was in the fourth grade.

FEATURE 3: ERBzine 1177
ERB Attacked in Toronto ~ Hospitalized with Head Injuries
From the ERB Tributes & Condolences File
After the death of his father in 1950, Jack Burroughs received a flood of letters of condolence. 
This letter from an old friend of Ed Burroughs -- R. M. Patchin -- is especially interesting, as it brings to light 
a remarkably significant event that took place in 1899. 
Ed received a severe blow to the head, from which he suffered from periods of amnesia, headaches 
and even nightmares and possibly an altered mental state, for much of the rest of his life.
