Arthur Stirling was entirely a self-educated man; he had worked at I know not how many impossible occupations, and labored in the night-time like the heroes one reads about. He taught himself to read five languages

Upton Sinclair was a Pulitzer Prize-winning who wrote over 90 books, best known for his muckraking novel, The Jungle.
