Strong, Austin


Strong, Austin
(1881-1952)
   San Francisco-born Austin Strong spent most of his childhood in Samoa, where he lived with his stepfather, Robert Louis Stevenson. As a playwright and lyricist, his works include The Little Father of the Wilderness (1906), The Toy-maker of Nuremberg (1907), The Pied Piper (1908), A Good Little Devil (1913), The Dragon s Claw (1914), Bunny (1916), Three Wise Fools (1918), and his greatest success, Seventh Heaven (1922), which had a long run and was adapted into one of the most popular motion pictures of the late 1920s. Strong's subsequent works, including Drums of Oude (1928) and A Play without a Name (1928), were commercial failures.
