Bernard Augustine DeVoto (January 11, 1897 – November 13, 1955) was an American historian, essayist, columnist, teacher, editor, and reviewer. He was the author of a series of Pulitzer-Prize-winning popular histories of the American West and for many years wrote The Easy Chair, an influential column in Harper's Magazine. DeVoto also wrote several well-regarded novels and during the 1950s served as a speech-writer for Adlai Stevenson. His friend and biographer, Wallace Stegner described Devoto as "flawed, brilliant, provocative, outrageous, ... often wrong, often spectacularly right, always stimulating, sometimes infuriating, and never, never dull."Wallace Stegner, The Uneasy Chair: A Biography of Bernard DeVoto." (New York, Vintage Books,[1974] reprint 1988) pp. ix—x.
