About the Author
Author Vida R. Sutton
Co-Author William R. Sutton
Vida R. Sutton, author, educator, lecturer and speech consultant, was born in 1878 in Oakland, California, reared in Helena, Montana, and graduated from the University of Chicago where she received an M.A. degree in 1908 and later studied at Columbus University in New York. For two years she was a newspaper correspondent in Europe for a series known as "Women the World Over" and later organized and was for five years, director of the Onteora Playhouse, one of the most distinguished of Little Theaters in the East. For eight years Miss Sutton served as a speech consultant for the National Broadcasting Company and was on the radio in the educational broadcast entitled "The Magic of Speech," a series of plays and talks presented weekly as a coast to coast feature of NBC, one of the most successful and unique features of educational radio. In the 1900's Vida was a Suffragette marching in parades and speaking in support of womens' rights and the right to vote in political elections. In 1920 Congress passed the 19th Amendment to the Constitution allowing women to vote. For a number of years Miss Sutton directed, produced and wrote "Pageants of the Centuries," perspectives on history from the 13th to the 19th centuries. Besides plays, articles and pamphlets, she wrote the books "Fires of Life," "Passports" and "Magic of Speech" broadcasts. For ten years she conducted a Book Review Hour - books about ourselves, our universe and our world. Vida Sutton was laid to rest on July 27, 1956 in New York at the age of 77.
Co-Author William R. Sutton was born in Oakland, California on March 23, 1936. He is the author of two magazine stories written about gold prospecting published in the Gold Prospector of America magazine and is a third generation gold prospector since 1982. He also is a former member of the Oregon-CaliforniaTrails Association that preserve trails used by the early emigrants going West via covered wagons on the Oregon Trail as well as other historic trails. As a child William spent most of his spare time in movie houses watching westerns during the early 1940's-1950's and considers himself an Old West history buff. After his Aunt Vida's death in 1956, the unfinished manuscript [The Wind Blew Him West] lay hidden away in a dusty old trunk in an attic for many years. Years later, William inherited the manuscript and had rewritten, retyped, researched, edited and assembled the loose-leaf, rough-draft text into chronological order and book form for publication after locating the lost and last missing chapters. Although his own individual writing is in evidence throughout the chapters, the original story is left intact as his grandfather dictated it to his daughter, Vida. William resides in Tracy, California and is married to his wife, Esperanza for the past 33 years. He has a son, Jeff, living in Santa Rosa, California and a daughter, Maria, that makes her home in Ontario, California.
