Biographical history

First published in the Bulletin on 14 December 1895, Davis became a regular and popular contributor. Encouraged by the editors, Rudd contributed a steady flow of selection stories. The popularity of these stories saw the publication of Rudd's first collection, On Our Selection, in 1899. This was followed four years later by Our New Selection, the second of ten volumes that deal with the Rudd family. -- excerpted from AustLit
