Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) was an American author best known for creating the characters of Tarzan and John Carter of Mars. He was born in Chicago, Illinois, and grew up in a wealthy family. He attended several private schools and then served in the army for a brief period before becoming a businessman.

In 1911, at the age of 35, Burroughs began writing fiction. His first story, "Under the Moons of Mars," was serialized in a magazine and introduced his character John Carter, a Civil War veteran who is transported to Mars. The story was later published as a novel titled "A Princess of Mars."

Burroughs continued to write stories featuring John Carter and also created the character of Tarzan, a man raised by apes in the African jungle. His Tarzan stories became immensely popular and were adapted into numerous films, television shows, and other media.

In addition to his science fiction and adventure stories, Burroughs also wrote historical fiction, westerns, and detective stories. He was a prolific writer and published more than 80 novels in his lifetime.

Burroughs died of a heart attack in 1950 at the age of 74.
