American writer, author of Hopalong Cassidy, written in 1904.
He wrote it in Fryeburg, Maine, United States, and the many stories and 28 novels were followed by radio, feature film, television, and comic book versions, often deviating significantly from the original stories, especially in the character's traits.
While many of his stories depicted Cassidy and other men of the Bar-20 ranch, he also wrote novels (and short stories) of other Westerners, starting with Johnny Nelson in 1920. He also wrote nonfiction, mostly about the West, the outdoors, and motoring.
Clarence died of complications from surgery in Portland, Maine on 10 May 1956.
