A bit about Hervey Allen ...

Hervey Allen (b. December 8, 1889 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - d. December 28, 1949 in Miami, Florida) He was born William Hervey Allen. He was an American author best known for his work Anthony Adverse. He also planned a series of novels about colonial America called The Disinherited. He completed three works in the series: The Forest and the Fort (1943), Bedford Village (1944), and Toward the Morning (1948). The novels tell the story of Salathiel Albine, a frontiersman kidnapped as a boy by Shawnee Indians in the 1750's. All three works were collected and published as the City in the Dawn. Allen also wrote Israfel (1926), a biography of American writer Edgar Allan Poe.
