In 1907 — two years after graduating from Harvard — Harold Ober became a literary agent at the Paul R. Reynolds Literary Agency. By 1908 he was representing such authors as Dane Coolidge, Jack London and H.G. Wells. In 1929, he opened his own agency — representing F. Scott Fitzgerald, Agatha Christie and Walter D. Edmonds. In 1938, Dorothy Olding and Ivan von Auw, Jr. joined the agency. Harold Ober died in 1959.
