Law school dropout Erle Stanley Gardner (1889-1970) used numerous nom de plumes throughout his career as a popular writer of pulp and detective fiction (including Kyle Corning, A.A. Fair, Charles M. Green, Carleton Kendrake, Charles J. Kenny, Robert Parr and Les Tillray), but he is best known for the prolific series of novels featuring criminal lawyer Perry Mason, which inspired a long-running television series (1957-1966) starring Raymond Burr in the title role, as well as a number of theatrical films in the 1930s and 1940s.
