MERIWETHER, Lee, author, born in Columbus, Mississippi, 25 December, 1862. His mother, Elizabeth Avery Meriwether, is the author of numerous tales, including "The Master of Red Leaf," called "the southern ' Uncle Tom's Cabin.' " The son was educated in the public schools of Memphis, Tennessee, and at the age of eighteen established, with an elder brother, the "Free-Trader." The next year he set out on a walking-tour through Europe for the purpose of studying the condition of workingmen and the effect of protective tariffs. He was employed by the United States bureau of labor to prepare a report on the "Condition of European Labor," which was included in the "Annual Report" for 1886. Since completing that work he has been retained in the service to gather information concerning labor in the United States. He is the author of "A Tramp Trip: How to see Europe on Fifty Cents a Day" (New York, 1887).
