Frederic, Harold

▪ American writer

born Aug. 19, 1856, Utica, N.Y., U.S.
died Oct. 19, 1898, Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, Eng.
 American journalist, foreign correspondent, and author of several historical novels.

      Interested at an early age in photography and journalism, Frederic became a reporter and by 1882 was editor of the Albany Evening Journal. In 1884 he went to London as the correspondent for The New York Times. He remained there for the rest of his life. In 1884 he made a hazardous tour investigating outbreaks of cholera in southern France and Italy. In 1891 he visited Russia to investigate the persecution of the Jews.

      His historical novels range from the American Revolution (In the Valley, 1890) to the American Civil War (The Copperhead, 1893, and Marsena and Other Stories, 1894). Of his New York State novels, The Damnation of Theron Ware (1896; English title Illumination), the story of the decline and fall of a Methodist minister, brought him his greatest fame. Three other novels, March Hares (1896), Gloria Mundi (1898), and The Market Place (1899), are about English life.
