Edgar Rice Burroughs Forever stamp
Edgar Rice Burroughs Stephen Kearney
Restless by nature, Burroughs (1875-1959) served with the U.S. Cavalry, dredged for gold, worked as a door-to-door salesman and a railroad policeman, and performed many other varied jobs until he published his first story, "Under the Moons of Mars," in 1912 — and found his destiny as a writer.
