Friday Fun Facts: Without Him There Would Be No Tarzan

On this day in 1857, Edgar Rice Burroughs was born. He created Tarzan. The first Tarzan book was published in 1914. Forty-eight films have been made based on that character. The first film came out in 1918. The latest film version came out this summer.

Ray Bradbury said of Burroughs, “Edgar Rice Burroughs was, and is, the most influential writer, bar none, of our century.”

Burroughs also created the character John Carter.
