  1. Edward Stratmeyer, the creator of the Hardy
  2. Boys, Nancy Drew, and the Bobbsey Twins, did not
  3. gain enormous commercial success through luck
  4. alone. His books, in which young amateur
  5. detectives had fantastic adventures and always
  6. saved the day, had a particular appeal in the time
  7. they were written. When Stratmeyer himself was a
  8. boy, the harsh economics of an industrializing
  9. America quickly forced children to become adults.
  10. By 1900, however, prosperity began to prolong
  11. childhood, creating a new stage of life--
  12. adolescence. From 1900 to 1930, the heyday of
  13. Stratmeyer’s career, adolescence came of age. Child
  14. labor laws made schooling compulsory until
  15. the age of sixteen. Young Americans, with more
  16. free time than the working youth of the previous
  17. century, looked to fiction and fantasy for
  18. adventure. Stratmeyer, writing under a variety of
  19. pseudonyms, responded to the needs of his readers
  20. with a slew of heroic super-teens.
