In 1906 the town (named for Elbert H. Gary, chief organizer of the United States Steel Corporation) was laid out as an adjunct of the company's vast new manufacturing complex.
The site was chosen because it lay on navigable water midway between the iron ore mines to the northwest and the coal mines to the south and was also near the limestone quarries of Michigan.

 Tirvengadum: Linguistic Fingerprints and Literary Fraud
In the mid-nineteen-seventies, France witnessed one of the most elaborate hoaxes ever to be played on the literary scene when Romain Gary, a well known French author, published a few novels under the name of Émile Ajar.
The work of Romain Gary provides thus an excellent example for the study of authorship attribution -- which is, itself, the analysis of stylistic traits of an author as an index of authenticity.
As Romain Gary's literary career spanned nearly thirty years, these four books, all written within a four year period, were chosen to avoid problems associated with change in style over time.

 JOYCE CAROL OATES: ROSAMOND SMITH
Explaining his motives in the posthumous memoir, Gary claimed he was tired of being "the famous Romain Gary"; he wanted to be someone else.
Romain Gary, writing as the unknown "Emile Ajar," is no longer writing as Gary, but as Gary-through-"Ajar"; the Danish noblewoman, Baroness Karen Blixen, choosing "Isak Dinesen" ("Isak": one who laughs) as a pseudonym, is writing as Blixen-through-"Isak Dinesen," thereby evoking an ancestral, magisterial, and certainly unfeminine self.
(Romain Gary compared his "doubling" with "Ajar" in terms of Macpherson's with "Ossian.") When the now-famous Karen Blixen/"Isak Dinesen" published a parablelike novel called The Angelic Avengers in 1944 under the pseudonym "Pierre Andrezel," she arranged for her longtime secretary-companion Clara Svendsen to be named on the title page as the translator.

Among the many generous gifts—reviews, comments, advice—which Bondy gave literature, was this eliciting from his childhood friend, Romain Gary, of a kind of spoken autobiography.
But here it’s clear that Bondy, the more reticent of the two, was fascinated by the enigmatic Gary, who fittingly led a multiplicity of public and private lives: aviator, resistant, diplomat and novelist under two names, neither of them his own, each winners of the Prix Goncourt, lover, star and fleeting connoisseur of the great.
Romain Gary was born in Moscow in 1914.

Thus it was that a fake letter was "leaked" to the Hollywood gossip columns, suggesting that the father of the child was not Gary, but a member of the Black Panthers.
