Edgar Allan Poe was born in Baltimore back in 1871 to John, sorry I don’t have his mother’s name. Anyway, he attended Princeton University where he played football. In 1889, he was named quarterback of the very first 1899 College Football All-American Team.He graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 1891 with a Bachelor of Arts. He continued his education at the University of Maryland School of Law graduating in 1893. In 1911, he was elected Attorney General of the State of Maryland. Now, I bet you thought I was writing about his second cousin, twice removed, didn’t you? He died in 1961 at 90. I know this is short but there wasn’t much else I could write about him. Until tomorrow keep that smile on your face.
