Fitzgerald's Briefcase

F. Scott and his lovely wife Zelda were trendsetters and both enjoyed all that life had to offer in the 1920s. A lovely description can be found at apartment therapy. Click the link above for the full thing. 

“Early Years

Named Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald after Francis Scott, the author of the Star-Spangled Banner (and a second cousin thrice removed), he was born in 1896 to a Catholic family in St. Paul, Minnesota. That boy from an upper Midwest town would eventually come to coin the term “Jazz Age” – a time that today is looked upon as flamboyant, carefree, high-flying and bursting with style and energy.

Fitzgerald served in the army, studied at Princeton (though he didn’t earn a degree), and got his start writing for the Saturday Evening Post and Vanity Fair. Writing stories for these publications wasn’t his first love (that was novels), but they paid for at least some(he was deep in debt) of his lavish lifestyle.
