Overview

Finley Peter Dunne, also known as F. P. D. (1867- 1936) was a Chicago-based American author, writer and humorist. He published Mr. Dooley in Peace and War, a collection of his nationally syndicated Mr. Dooley sketches, in 1898. The fictional Mr. Dooley expounded upon political and social issues of the day from his South Side Chicago Irish pub and he spoke with the thick verbiage and accent of an Irish immigrant. His sly humor and political acumen won the support of President Theodore Roosevelt, a frequent target of Mr. Dooley's barbs. Indeed his sketches became so popular and such a litmus test of public opinion that they were read each week at White House cabinet meetings. His other works include: Mr. Dooley: In the Hearts of His Countrymen (1898), Mr. Dooley's Philosophy (1900), Observations by Mr. Dooley (1902), Mr. Dooley on the Pursuit of Riches (1904), Mr. Dooley Says (1910), The World of Mr. Dooley (1962) and Mr. Dooley Remembers (1963).
