In 1916, Anderson divorced his wife and married an artist named Tennessee Mitchell. Having secured a job as a copywriter in Chicago, Anderson became part of the “Chicago Renaissance” along with newfound friends and fellow writers Floyd Dell, Theodore Dreiser, Ben Hecht, and Carl Sandburg. A loose literary movement prominent until the mid-1920s, the Chicago Renaissance sought to present a realistic portrayal of urban America without the sentimentality popular in the high Victorian fiction of the previous generation.
The family was forced to move frequently because of the fluctuating business prospects of his father, a Union Army veteran of the American Civil War. They finally settled in Clyde, Ohio, in 1884. Until he was seventeen, Anderson helped support his family as a newsboy, housepainter, stock handler, and stable groom. He was only intermittently educated during these years. Beginning his adult life as an unskilled laborer, Anderson eventually achieved financial security as a factory owner in the early 1900s.
