Thomas Edwin Mix was an American film actor and the star of many early Western movies between 1909 and 1935. Mix appeared in 291 films, he was Hollywood's first Western star and helped define the genre as it emerged in the early days of the cinema. Thomas Hezikiah Mix was born January 6, 1880 in Mix Run, about 62 miles north of State College, Pennsylvania, to Edwin Elias Mix and Elizabeth Heistand, he grew up in nearby DuBois, where his father, a stable master for a wealthy lumber merchant, taught him to ride and love horses. He spent time working on a local farm owned by a lumber businessman, he had dreams of being in the circus and was rumored to have been caught by his parents practicing knife-throwing tricks against a wall, using his sister as an assistant. In April 1898, during the Spanish–American War, he enlisted in the Army under the name Thomas E. Mix, his unit never went overseas, Mix failed to return for duty after an extended furlough when he married Grace I. Allin on July 18, 1902.

On July 13, 1912, Olive gave birth to their daughter Ruth. In 1905, Mix rode in President Theodore Roosevelt's inaugural parade with a group of 50 horsemen led by Seth Bullock, which included several former Rough Riders. Years Hollywood publicists muddled this event to imply that Mix had been a Rough Rider himself. Mix lived in Guthrie, working as a bartender and other odd jobs, he was night marshal of Dewey, Oklahoma, in 1911. He found employment at the Miller Brothers 101 Ranch, one of the largest ranching businesses in the United States, covering 101,000 acres, hence its name; the ranch had its own touring Wild West show. He stood out as a skilled horseman and expert shot, winning national riding and roping contests at Prescott, Arizona, in 1909, Canon City, Colorado, in 1910.

Mix began his film career as a supporting cast member with the Selig Polyscope Company. His first appearance was in a short film, The Cowboy Millionaire, released on October 21, 1909. In 1910, he appeared as himself in a short documentary film, Ranch Life in the Great Southwest, in which he displayed his skills as a cattle wrangler.

By Selig Polyscope had encountered severe financial difficulties, Mix and Forde both subsequently signed with Fox Film Corporation, which had leased the Edendale studio, they married in 1918 and had a daughter, Thomasina Mix, in February 1922. Mix made more than 160 cowboy films throughout the 1920s; these featured action-oriented scripts contrasted with the documentary style of his work with Selig.

Heroes and villains were defined and a clean-cut cowboy always saved the day. Millions of American children grew up watching his films on Saturday afternoons, his intelligent and handsome horse Tony became a celebrity. Mix did his own stunts and was injured. In 1913, Mix moved his family to a ranch, he spent a lot of time at the ranch. A number of the movies were filmed in the Prescott home. During this time, Mix had success in the local Prescott Frontier Days rodeo, which lays claim to being the "world's oldest rodeo." In 1920, he took first prize in a bull-riding contest. Today, his Bar Circle A Ranch developed into a planned community called Yavapai Hills where there is still a street named Bar Circle Ranch Road. Mix's salary at Fox reached $7,500 a week.

At the Edendale lot, Mix built. Loaded with western props and furnishings, it has been described as a "complete frontier town, with a dusty street, hitching rails, a saloon, bank, doctor's office, surveyor's office, the simple frame houses typical of the early Western era." Near the back of the lot an Indian village of lodges was ringed by miniature plaster mountains which were said to be, on screen, "ferociously convincing". The set included a simulated desert, a large corral, a ranch house with no roof. Mix played hard-to-get, threatening to move to Argentina to make films or to join the circus, but he signed with FBO, although he left the studio for Universal after salary disputes with FBO studio head Joseph P. Kennedy, he said of Kennedy that he was a "tight-assed, money-crazed son-of-a-bitch". In 1929, Mix was a pallbearer at the funeral of Wyatt Earp.

Mémoires d'Outre-Tombe

Mémoires d'Outre-Tombe is the memoir of François-René de Chateaubriand and published posthumously in two volumes in 1849 and 1850, respectively. Chateaubriand was a writer, politician and historian, regarded as the founder of French Romanticism. Although the work shares characteristics with earlier French "memoirs", the Mémoires d'Outre-Tombe are inspired by the Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau: in addition to providing a record of political and historical events, Chateaubriand includes details of his private life and his personal aspirations; the work abounds in instances of the poetic prose. On the other hand, the melancholy of the autobiography helped establish Chateaubriand as the idol of the young French Romantics, it was while in Rome at the close of 1803. In 1817 he returned to the memoirs; the first manuscript written while he was serving as ambassador to London, did not reach completion until 1826. At this point, he intended to entitle the book Memories of My Life. In 1830, Chateaubriand decided to change the scope of the work, revising the title to Mémoires d'Outre-Tombe, making a thorough revision of the original text, writing several new volumes.

He divided his life before 1830 into three periods: soldier and traveler and statesman. The project had by now become more ambitious. After fragmented public readings of his work in salons, in 1836 Chateaubriand yielded the rights to his work to a society that published it until his death, paying him accordingly. Having obtained this economic stability, he completed the work with a fourth set of volumes. In 1841 he wrote an ample conclusion. Chateaubriand intended for the work to be published at least fifty years after his death, but his financial troubles forced him, in his words, "to mortgage tomb". There have been a number of English translations. British author Anthony Kline published a complete translation in 2005, available for non-commercial use. An abridged translation by Robert Baldick was first published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1961, in paperback, by Penguin books in 1972. A New York Review of Books edition translated by Alex Andriesse was published in 2018, covering the years 1768-1800.
