Rex Stout

Rex Todhunter Stout, one of the greatest American detective writers, best known for his books on Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin. He is the author of over fifty novels and about seventy-five novellas and short stories; Rex Stout’s books have been translated into twenty-six languages ​​and published in a total circulation of more than one hundred million copies.

Rex Stout was born December 1, 1886 in Noblesville, Indiana, the sixth of nine children of John Wallace Stout and Lucetta Elizabeth Todhunter Stout. The family soon moved to Topeka, Kansas, where Rex’s father taught at the school. Rex was an unusually gifted student, by the age of four he had read the Bible twice from cover to cover, by the age of twelve he had read all the plays of Shakespeare and knew his sonnets by heart (and at eighty-six he quoted them with ease), at thirteen he became a state champion by spelling. He attended school in Topeka, where he was noted for his ability in mathematics.

As a teenager, Rex was very fond of arguing, but did not like to lose in disputes. For example, he argued with a Sunday school teacher that Jesus could not turn water into wine. The teacher said that the evidence in the Bible was enough to prove it. The following Sunday, Rex brought a certificate from the local apothecary stating that it was impossible to turn water into wine without the addition of fermenting agents.

During the summer holidays, Rex worked helping to keep books (familiarity with school accounting in the future was very useful to him). After graduating from high school, he entered the University of Kansas, but dropped out, realizing that he would not learn anything new for himself.

In 1906, Stout joined the US Navy, where he served for two years on the official yacht of the twenty-sixth President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, ” Mayflower “, performing the duties of an accountant. By the way, it was at this time that Rex Stout first appeared on the pages of the newspaper: on January 13, 1907, the local edition of Topeka Daily Capital publishes an interview with Rex, in which he talks about his service aboard the presidential yacht.

Over the next four years, he changed more than thirty jobs in six states of the United States, including working at the docks, as a manager in a hotel, and selling cigars in a tobacco store. During the same period, Stout published his first stories in various publications. Around 1916, Stout invented the school banking system adopted by more than 400 American schools. The fee for the invention allowed Stout to leave for Europe and later devote himself entirely to writing.

Also in 1916, Rex Stout married Fay Kennedy (Fay Kennedy), with whom he lived in a marriage until 1933. In the same year, 1933, Stout married Paul Hoffman (Pola Hoffman).
