Biography

Born in Clarinda, Iowa on 23 December 1902, Maclean was the son of Rev. John Maclean, a Scottish Presbyterian minister, who oversaw much of the education of the young Norman and his brother Paul until 1913. The family relocated to Missoula, Montana in 1909. The following years were a considerable influence on and inspiration to his writings, appearing prominently in the short story The Woods, Books, and Truant Officers (1977), and semi-autobiographical novella A River Runs Through It (1976).

Too young to enlist in the military during World War I, Maclean worked in logging camps and for the United States Forest Service in what is now the Bitterroot National Forest of southwestern Montana. The novella USFS 1919: The Ranger, the Cook, and a Hole in the Sky and the story "Black Ghost" in Young Men and Fire (1992) are semi-fictionalized accounts of these experiences.

Maclean attended Dartmouth College, where he served as editor-in-chief of the humor magazine the Dartmouth Jack O'Lantern; the editor-in-chief to follow him was Theodor Giesel, better known as Dr. Seuss. He received his Bachelor of Arts in 1924, and chose to remain in Hanover, New Hampshire and serve as an instructor until 1926—a time he recalled in "This Quarter I Am Taking McKeon: A Few Remarks on the Art of Teaching." He began graduate studies in English at the University of Chicago in 1928. Three years later he was hired as a professor at University of Chicago, where he went on to receive three Quantrell Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching. It was during this time that Maclean married Jessie Burns, a red-headed Scots-Irish woman from Helena. They later had two children: a daughter Jean (born in 1942), now a lawyer; and a son, John (born in 1943), now a journalist and author of Fire on the Mountain: The True Story of the South Canyon Fire (1999).

In 1940, Maclean earned his doctorate from the University of Chicago where during World War II he served as Dean of Students and as Director of the Institute on Military Studies, and co-authored Manual of Instruction in Military Maps and Aerial Photographs. Maclean, a scholar of Shakespeare and the Romantic poets, was William Rainey Harper Professor of English at the University of Chicago until he retired in 1973. He then began, as his children had often encouraged him, to write down the stories he liked to tell. His most acclaimed work, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories was published in 1976, the first work of fiction published by the University of Chicago Press. This title had nearly unanimous support by critics to receive the Pulitzer Prize in Letters in 1977 but the story—a semi-fictional account of Maclean's family—was deemed to be too close to real life to be considered fiction. A River Runs Through It was adapted into a motion picture directed by Robert Redford and released by Columbia Pictures starring Craig Sheffer, Brad Pitt, and Tom Skerritt in 1992. 1940 (MCMXL) was a leap year starting on Monday (the link is to a full 1940 calendar). ...

Maclean's books and short stories—ending with Young Men and Fire (1992) published posthumously—are noted for their keen adaptation of autobiographical details and lyrical prose. Young Men and Fire, a non-fiction account of the tragic 1949 Mann Gulch forest fire, was the winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1992. In 1991, a renovated church retirement home was turned into Maclean House, a dorm for undergrad students at the University of Chicago. The Mann Gulch fire of 1949 occurred when a wildfire in the Helena National Forest, Montana, United States, spread out of control and ultimately claimed the lives of 13 firefighters. ...
