Dave Page is one of the foremost scholars writing today on the life and legacy of Saint Paul native F. Scott Fitzgerald. Among other credits, Page edited The Thoughtbook of F. Scott Fitzgerald, the future literary star’s boyhood journal. (Fitzgerald mined Minnesota characters and episodes from his ‘Thoughtbook’ when crafting a backdrop for his seminal The Great Gatsby, and in other stories.) Page also co-edited The St. Paul Stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald (2004). His latest research endeavor, F. Scott Fitzgerald in Minnesota: The Writer and His Friends at Home, is a house-by-house guide to Summit Avenue and other areas of Saint Paul that Fitzgerald knew and loved. In this impressive opus – which weighs in at nearly two pounds – Page’s anecdotes are accompanied by hundreds of historical and contemporary photographs, and nearly 700 footnotes. Page has taught English and Fitzgerald courses at Inver Hills Community College, and currently serves on the board of the non-profit organization Fitzgerald in Saint Paul.
