During the 1920s, German-Swiss author Emil Ludwig became achieved international fame for his popular biographies of historical "greats" which combined historical fact and fiction with psychological analysis. As Ludwig's biographies were popular outside of Germany and were widely translated, he was one of the fortunate émigrés who had an income while living in the United States.
