Author. Born in New York City, New York, he was the grandson of Benjamin Henry Day, founder of the New York "Sun" newspaper. He attended Yale University before going to work as a stockbroker in his father's business. He then enlisted in the United States Navy in 1898. After developing debilitating arthritis, however, he became a semi-invalid and spent his time writing. He published ‘The Crow's Nest' in 1921, and ‘Thoughts Without Words' in 1928. The memoirs of his youth which included ‘God and My Father' published in 1932, ‘Life with Father' published in 1935, ‘Life with Mother' published in 1937, and ‘Father and I' published in 1940, became very popular. The books were eventually utilized to create the Broadway play ‘Life with Father' which became one of the longest-running plays in Broadway history. A successful film version of the play starring William Powell was released in 1947. Day died in New York City at age 61.
