Charles Heber Clark was a bestselling author (using the pseudonym Max Adeler) of humorous novels, in­cluding, Out of the Hurly Burly and Elbow Room. Originally from Maryland, he settled down to write in Conshohocken after a career in journalism. Although forgotten today, he was well known in his time, and even carried on a rivalry with Mark Twain, in which both accused the other of plagiarism. Several of his books are in the collection of the Historical Society of Montgomery County.
