The success of these of books heightened Stratemeyer's literary ambition and broadened his view of the publishing industry. He saw that it would be far more profitable for him to own and operate a "factory" of juvenile literature that would produce and market to publishers numerous volumes of books in series, rather than continue to write individual books and sell them one by one.
In he formed what he called his Stratemeyer Syndicate to "make contracts with certain publishing houses to issue books under several trade-mark pen names which are my business property. Stratemeyer's business model met the demands of a growing American publishing industry that was committed to increasing sales through aggressive marketing strategies. Having secured a publisher's interest and signed a contract for a book series, Stratemeyer then hired ghostwriters to produce manuscripts based on his detailed outlines. Stratemeyer sketched book plots according to a rigid formula, aiming to produce entertaining literature for young people that at the same time served a serious moral and didactic purpose.
The stories of Horatio Alger, whose young protagonists overcame difficult economic circumstances and a sometimes pernicious social environment to achieve success, were among Stratemeyer's models. Syndicate writers were paid a one-time fee for each manuscript, received no royalties, and agreed never to reveal their identities or pen names. To his credit, Stratemeyer paid his writers promptly, often giving them advances, loans and gifts when they were in financial difficulties. When a new Syndicate book appeared, Edward Stratemeyer usually shared advertising costs with the publisher, though he himself maintained strict control over the design of promotional materials including newspaper ads, circulars and catalogs.
Stratemeyer found his first ghostwriters among former colleagues from his years writing for such publications as Argosy and Golden Days. One of the most prolific of these early associates was Howard Garis, who signed an annual contract committing him to produce a set number of volumes. Lillian Garis, Howard's spouse, also wrote for Stratemeyer, though her contracts were signed on a book-by-book basis. Perhaps the most famous author associated with Edward Stratemeyer is Horatio Alger.
Stratemeyer had met Alger, one of his boyhood idols, during the s, and the two writers corresponded until Alger's death in Stratemeyer successfully negotiated with Alger's estate for the rights to expand, edit and publish several of Alger's short stories. Stratemeyer also acquired a scrapbook compiled by Alger and used it as source material for a Syndicate volume, The Young Book Agent. But at the Syndicate's peak years of production he ceased to write and devoted himself entirely to the business, marketing and publicity aspects of the Syndicate.
Stratemeyer was quick to defend Syndicate publications against criticism, and he frequently penned responses to poor reviews. In he withdrew his long-time support of the American Boy Scouts when the organization's official librarian suggested that Stratemeyer books were not appropriate reading material for its members.
Several years later, Stratemeyer threatened officials of the Brooklyn Public Library with a lawsuit when a library staff member publicly condemned Stratemeyer Syndicate books. In the early years of the Syndicate, Edward Stratemeyer worked in rooms on the top floor of his Newark home, and conducted business meetings at the offices of his various New York publishers or at the Astor House Hotel.
In he opened an office at 17 Madison Avenue in Manhattan and hired Harriet Otis Smith to maintain a regular presence there, while he continued to work primarily at home. Smith's responsibilities and remuneration steadily increased as Stratemeyer came to rely on her for her sound editorial judgment, her publishing expertise, and her efficient management of the Syndicate's complicated production routine. The success of the Stratemeyer Syndicate enabled Edward to provide his family with a comfortable living. He employed a maid and cook, and saw that his children were attended by trained nurses when sick.
The family home in Newark was equipped with a player piano, a Victrola, and telephone service. The Stratemeyers summered at the Jersey shore, or in the western New Jersey countryside. Over the years, Edward and his wife traveled throughout the United States and Canada. An early automobile enthusiast, Edward owned a touring car, which he taught his daughters to drive.
As their book business flourished, the Stratemeyers made substantial contributions to numerous charitable causes and were equally generous with their relatives and close friends. Edward was an active citizen of Newark who participated in civic events and public organizations. He died in May of , not long after the appearance of two of his most successful book series, The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew. Following Edward Stratemeyer's death, his wife Magdalene Van Camp Stratemeyer legally inherited the Syndicate, but poor health prevented her from taking an active role in the business.
The Stratemeyer daughters, Harriet and Edna, stepped in to run the Syndicate as joint partners, and assumed legal control upon the death of their mother in Harriet, a graduate of Wellesley College who had written for her college newspaper, had briefly assisted her father during the s by editing manuscripts. In she had married a close family friend, Russell Vroom Adams, and was by the time of her father's passing the mother of four children.
