“Loyalty to a petrified opinion never broke a chain or freed a human soul.”

Mark Twain was the pen name for Samuel Clemens (1835-1910). He was a famous humorist and wrote many autobiographical works, travel books, and novels.

Hannibal, Missouri was the river town of his boyhood. The experiences he had along the wide Mississippi were a rich source for many of his books. Two of his most famous characters, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, have been endeared to young and old alike with their irresponsible and mischievous escapades.

Samuel Clemens was also a serious social critic. He used humor to express his offense to all forms of narrow-mindedness and prejudice.

In 1871 he and his family moved to Hartford, Connecticut, where hs spent the next 38 years. Twain wrote most of his best known work during this time including his first novel, The Gilded Age (1873) along with A Tramp Aboard (1880), The Prince and the Pauper (1882) and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1889) .... the Mississippi River have been the most popular, including The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), Life on the Mississippi (1883), and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), which is often considered his greatest work.

This portrait of Mark Twain by Sir Leslie Ward, also known as "Spy", was probably for the British magazine Vanity Fair. Published between 1868 and 1914, Vanity Fair, "A Weekly Show of Political, Social, and Literary Wares", is best known for its caricatures of the rich and famous and was Victorian and Edwardian England's equivalent of an entertainment show. Ward also did a portrait of composer Richard Wagner, Sir Winston Churchill, Gilbert and Sullivan.
