Edmond was born at Glasgow and travelled to New Zealand in 1878, before arriving in Australia a few years later. He began working at the Bulletin in 1886, and became associate editor with J F Archibald in 1890, then editor from 1903 until 1915. He contributed short stories and verse to the Bulletin and the Lone Hand and his stories were also collected in A Journalist and Two Bears (1913). He has been remembered as a significant figure in Australian literary histories and biographies like Randolph Bedford's Naught to Thirty Three (1944) as well as more recent critical commentaries.
