Upton Sinclair’s Biography
Sinclair’s parents are notables from the southern United States. His father’s family boasts a tradition of naval service dating back to the American War of Independence. His great-grandfather, Commodore Arthur Sinclair, served in the 1812 war with the United States Navy. During the American Civil War, his sons joined the ranks of the Confederate Navy.
Upton Sinclair, however, was born in Baltimore, Maryland, as his family’s commitment to the Confederation weighed on his family’s fortune. The only son, Upton Sinclair thus lives a childhood mixing wealth and poverty. His father is an alcoholic and his immediate family is poor, but the young Upton stays in New York for a long time in an affluent branch of his mother’s family. This experience of the two extremes of American society probably pushes him towards socialism.
To pay for his tuition at the City College of New York, Sinclair writes comedy tickets and stories for the press, as well as station novels for publisher Street & amp; Smith. He can continue his education at Columbia University.
He then spent most of his life near Pasadena, California, Buckeye, Arizona, and Bound Brook, New Jersey. He has been married three times.
His house (Upton Sinclair House) in Monrovia, California is a National Historic Landmark.
