RARA-AVIS: Earl Stanley Gardner

Yesterday's NewsScan had a feature on Gardner--said he started off as a hardboiled writer for the pulps and later made his protagonists more cerebral for middle-brow appeal.
    His first job was as a lawyer's typist, probably the source of his prolific speed as a writer. When he became a lawyer, he represented the poor and minorities and then wrote about the mean streets he knew.
    When rich and famous, he founded the Court of Last Appeal to free innocent convicts.

Joy, the impressed
