Dates of existence
Arthur Hoey Davis was born on 14 November 1868 at Drayton, Queensland. He was the son of Thomas Davis (1828-1904), a blackshmith who was sent to Australia in 1847 for a conviction of petty theft and Mary Green (1835-1893). While working at a sheriff's office he began writing a column on rowing in a weekly paper and this is where his pen name of Steele Rudd began. What was to become the first chapter in On our selection was published as an article 'Starting the selection', in the Bulletin on 14 December 1895. This article was based on his father's experiences. Davis became a regular and popular contributor. On Our Selection, was published in 1899. This was followed four years later by Our New Selection, the second of ten volumes that deal with the Rudd family. He died on 11 October 1935.
