Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835–1910), is better known as the beloved writer Mark Twain. Twain was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. He was photographed here with an 11-year-old girl named Dorothy Quick. At age 75, after Twain's wife died, he began numerous friendships with young girls between the age of 10 and 16, partly because he was of the age of a grandfather and wanted granddaughters. He called them his "angelfish." Some believe he was trying to relive his own lost childhood. Others link it to the drowning death of his favorite daughter and because he was then estranged from his other children. Photographed in 1907.
