Samuel Clemens Born November 30, 1835 Initiated May 22, 1861 Raised July 10, 1861 Died April 21, 1910 Samuel Langhorne Clemens was born on November 30, 1835 in Florida, Missouri. Clemens is best known by his nom de plume, Mark Twain, under which he wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawer in 1876, and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in 1885. Clemens began work as a typesetter, tried is hand at mining, then turned to journalism. Twain traveled as a journalist across the Great Planes and Rocky Mountains to Nevada, Missouri, San Francisco, New York, the Mediterranean, and Connecticut. Many of his great works are said to have derived from his experiences in his previous vocations and travels. In 1861, Twain was made a Freemason at Polar Star Lodge No. 79 A.F.&A.M. in St. Louis. Brother Clemens was called from labor on April 21, 1910, in Redding, Connecticut and is laid to rest at Woodlawn Cemetery in Elmira, New York.
