G.A. Henty
Original name: George Alfred Henty
Birth: Dec. 8, 1832
Death: Nov. 16, 1902

British Author. Noted for his stories for boys. On the outbreak of the Crimean War, Henty and his brother Frederick volunteered for service, and left for Russia early in 1855. Frederick died of cholera at Scutari, but G.A.'s letters home, which described the siege of Sebastapol, were forwarded by James Henty to the editor of the Morning Advertiser, who considered them to be of such merit that Henty was commissioned to write a series of letters from the front for the paper. His first novel, "A Search for a Secret," appeared in 1867, and was the first of a dozen or so intended for adults, but he is best remembered for his adventure stories for boys, the first of which was "Out in the Pampas" (1867), with other books produced at the rate of three or four each year. He died in Weymouth Harbour, on board his yacht, "Egret." (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
