James T. Farrell wrote more than 100 books in his lifetime, but gained his highest distinction for the Studs Lonigan trilogy, in which he drew on his own experiences to document the lives of first and second-generation Irish Americans. In 1929, he began writing Young Lonigan, the first part of the trilogy, while living at this home. A Chicago Tribute Marker of Distinction has been erected at the site.
