Ernest Miller Hemingway was born on July 21, 1899 in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. He was the second child born to Clarence Edmonds "Doc Ed" Hemingway - a country doctor, and Grace Hall Hemingway.
Hemingway's father attended the birth of Ernest and blew a horn on his front porch to announce to the neighbours that his wife had given birth to their first boy.
The Hemingways lived in a six-bedroom Victorian house built by Ernest's widowed maternal grandfather, Ernest Miller Hall, an English immigrant and Civil War veteran who lived with the family.
Hemingway's mother once aspired to a career as an opera singer, and she earned money by giving voice and music lessons.
