Author Bio for Fitzhugh, Percy Keese

Author Image

Percy Keese Fitzhugh (1876-1950) was an American author. His first known work, The Goldenrod Story Book was published in 1906. The bulk of his work, having a Boy Scouting theme, revolves around the fictional town of Bridgeboro, New Jersey. Characters included Tom Slade, Pee-wee Harris, Roy Blakely, and Westy Martin. Fitzhugh's Scouting based books were very popular with children and adults. His characters became so real to his readers that it was not uncommon for Percy to receive fan mail addressed to the characters themselves. In the 1930's, he began writing the Hal Keen Mystery Series (10 titles) under the pseudonym Hugh Lloyd. They were followed by another mystery series - Skippy Dare - (3 titles). Neither of these series achieved the popularity of his Scout work.

Author Bio for Barbour, H. S.

Harold Barbour was born in Newtonville, Massachusetts in 1889. He attended the Art Students League in New York City and worked in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1929 Barbour and his wife moved to Higganum, Connecticut and lived there until his death. He was active in the Central Connecticut Art Center in Marlborough. In addition to illustrations and cartoons, Barbour wrote poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. He was active in the Brainerd Memorial Library, serving as chair of the Board of Trustees, and was a member of the Haddam Historical Society. The Haddam Historical Society now owns the [Harold] Barbour Collection of cartoons and illustrations, his fiction, non-fiction, poetry, pencil sketches, photographs, and wood block prints. Barbour worked for the Public Works of Art Project, a program funded prior to the WPA Federal Arts Project. For the WPA, he painted 54 easel paintings and two murals, one depicting a scene from the Portland Quarry and the other, a shipyard in Portland. Both are in the Portland High School. A series of easel paintings on tobacco farming were allocated to the Portland Board of Education. A series of ten easel paintings was done for the Children’s Village in Hartford, Connecticut now known as the Village for Families and Children. Barbour died in 1961.
