Sully the Wandering Tramp
I was told that Booth Tarkington may have written a book titled "Sully the Wandering Tramp" but I am beginning to doubt whether he did.
If someone knows the true author behind "Sully . . . the Tramp", please post it on the main page to this article (under Booth Tarkington) or put a link to the right author here. Dexter Nextnumber (talk) 09:57, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Wife or daughter
As far as I can tell, Booth's wife was the Indianapolis poet Louise Fletcher, daughter of the banker Staughton Fletcher. Staughton also had a daughter named Louise but she died in 1927 at the age of 24 and so could hardly have been married to Booth from 1902 to 1911 and borne him a child.
