Dedicated to the legacy of Edward Stratemeyer, author & founder of the Stratemeyer Syndicate

Frank V. Webster

“Frank V. Webster” was a Stratemeyer Syndicate pseudonym used for the Webster series of stories that resemble the writings of Horatio Alger, Jr.

Unlike many pen names, a conscious effort was made to present “Frank V. Webster” as a real person.  A 1911 Cupples & Leon ad to the book trade, likely written by Edward Stratemeyer, made the Alger connection.
