Adams, William Taylor,
pseudonym OLIVER OPTIC (b. July 30, 1822, Medway, Mass., U.S.d. March 27, 1897, Boston, Mass.), American teacher and author of juvenile literature, best known for his children's magazine and the series of adventure books that he wrote under his pseudonym. Although he never graduated from college, Adams was a teacher and principal in Boston elementary schools for more than 20 years. Under the pen name Oliver Optic, he wrote stories for boys, and in 1865 he resigned his position as a principal to pursue his writing full-time. Soon after that he began Oliver Optic's Magazine for Boys and Girls (1867-1875), which enjoyed great popularity. Adams was a prolific writer, producing about a thousand magazine and newspaper stories and well over a hundred full-length books. His books are written in series and take young heroes through exotic and educational adventures. His characters travel much and are well mannered, athletic, and patriotic, and the stories are laced with a strong moral. Adams' books were popular with girls as well as boys, although girls appeared infrequently as characters in his writing. Critics charge that, to the adult reader, Adams' books reveal careless writing and are remarkable only for their vivid narratives.

Adams, William Taylor (Oliver Optic).
The books that charmed us in our youth recall the delight ever afterwards.
A. B. ALCOTT: Table Talk, Book I WILLIAM T. ADAMS (OLIVER OPTIC) (1822-1897) William Taylor Adams, better known by his pen name "Oliver Optic," was born in Medway, Massachusetts, July 30, 1822. His father, Laban Adams, was at that time the proprietor of a tavern in Boston, but in 18 38 he moved to a farm in West Roxbury. William received his schooling first in Boston and later obtained what he could while doing farm work. He then traveled for a year in the South and upon his return assisted his father in the management of the "Adams House," built on the site of the former tavern. After a short time, however, he obtained the principalship of the grammar school at Dorchester, at that time a village but now a suburb of Boston, and while there was married, in 1846, to Sarah Jenkins, by whom he had two daughters. He continued to teach in various Boston schools for twenty years, and at the same time wrote many short stories and books. In 1865 he resigned to devote his entire time to literature, although he retained his interest in the public schools. He was a member of the Massachusetts State Legislature for one year but declined a renomination. He died March 27, 1897, at his home in Dorchester. His first book was written in 1853 under the pen name "Warren T. Ashton."1 It was called "Hatchie, the Guardian Slave; or, The Heiress of Bellevue. A Tale of the Mississippi and the South-West," and for it he received $37.50[!] from a Boston publisher. Most of his short stories and books were written for boys. His style was so pleasing, his plots so interesting, and the action so lively, that he was very successful and had a very large following of youthful readers. He had the ability of writing stories that were so natural and everyday in their setting that his boy readers unconsciously became in imagination the heroes themselves. Adams' style is, in some cases, rather
