About the Author

John Ames Mitchell (1845-1918), was the founder and publisher of Life magazine. Mitchell was a man of many talents. Educated at Phillips Exeter Academy, he later studied at the Lawrence Scientific School at Harvard. After leaving Harvard, Mitchell went on to study architecture in Boston and then at the École des Beaux Arts in Paris. He later returned to the U.S. where he would then work for an architecture firm for a number of years. John Ames returned to Paris again after deciding architecture was not his calling and there studied drawings and paintings at Julian s atelier and with Albert Maignan. Returning in 1880 to New York City, Mitchell founded Life magazine in 1883, which was a humorous weekly that was closer in its format to the New Yorker Magazine of today than the picture magazine that Henry Luce developed Life into when he bought the magazine in 1936. In addition to being an architect, artist, editor and novelist, Mitchell was also active in charitable work. In fact, he along with Horace Greely created the Fresh Air Fund. J.A. Mitchell wrote fourteen books, the most famous being Amos Judd, which was made into the 1922 silent film, The Young Rajah, starring Rudolph Valentino.
