The Death of Edgar Rice Burroughs – Creator of ‘Tarzan’

Posted on March 19th, 2013 by The British Newspaper Archive

The American novelist, Edgar Rice Burroughs, died on 19 March 1950.

This is just a wee news clipping about the writer, but it contains some interesting snippets about his life.

We enjoyed learning about all the jobs he had, and also that he mistakenly put tigers in Africa – poetic licence, that is!
