About the Author

Horace Elisha Scudder was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Being the last of seven children, he seldom lacked company during his early years. His parents, Charles Scudder, a successful merchant, and Sarah Lathrop Coit Scudder, were both native New Englanders. Charles Scudder, who served as a deacon in the Union Church, exerted a strong religious influence on his children. Horace Scudder attended Roxbury and Boston Latin schools before entering Williams College. While in college, he devoted himself to classical studies and to editing the Williams Quarterly. He graduated in 1858 at the age of twenty.

Scudder had a significant impact on adult literature. He wrote several adult books, including George Washington - An Historical Biography (1889). From 1890 to 1898 he served as editor of the Atlantic Monthly.
