"The trouble with those people is that they think all the best things are made in the cities. It is not so." -- Ernest Poole
Ernest Cook Poole (1880–1950) was a U.S. novelist.

He was born in Chicago, Illinois on January 23, 1880, and graduated from Princeton University in 1902. He worked as a journalist and was active in promoting social reforms including the ending of child labor.

He was a correspondent for The Saturday Evening Post in Europe before and during World War I.

His novel The Harbor has remained the work for which he is best known. It presents a strong socialist message, set in the industrial Brooklyn waterfront. It is considered one of the first fictional works to offer a positive view of unions.

His portrait of a New York family titled His Family made him the first recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for the Novel in 1918.

In 1917, for The New Republic magazine he went to Russia to report on the Russian Revolution.

Ater the war, Poole, Paul Kennaday, and Arthur Livingston founded an agency, the Foreign Press Service, that negotiated for foreign authors with English-language publishers.

Ernest Poole died in Franconia, New Hampshire on January 10, 1950.
