Novelists Many of the novelists produced 'happiness novels' because the women were the greater readers of fiction. Best selling authors produced many fine books we still enjoy; L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful World of Oz, Mary Johnson's To Have and To Hold, Jack London's Call of the Wild, Alice Hegan Rice's Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch, and Owen Wister's The Virginian. Willa Cather, [Pictured at left] Zane Grey, William Dean Howells, and Carl Sandberg were publishing. As in other decades, books reflected the times in which people lived.

Teacher education improved during this decade and testing became the norm. In 1900 the Association of American Universities was formed to promote high standards among colleges.
