Memoir: Telling the Truth About Other People

Nan Barnes

Today’s Memoir/Family History Quote
“Autobiography is an unrivaled vehicle for telling the truth about other people.”
Phillip Guedalla
Today’s Literary Birthday
Benjamin Franklin, whom historian Walter Isaacson called “ the greatest American of his age and most influential in inventing the type of society America would become,” was born on this day in 1706. A great philosopher, scientist, inventor, and diplomat as well as one of the leading founders of the new United States, Franklin began his life as a journalist and publisher. He published the Philadelphia Gazette and Poor Richard’s Almanack. The Almanack contained proverbs such as “Necessity never made a good bargain,” “Three can keep a secret, if two of them are dead,” and “Fish and visitors stink in three days.” Franklin’s Autobiography is a classic of American literature and one of the greatest of its genre.
