Henry Chapman Mercer
(June 24, 1856 - March 9, 1930)

Henry Chapman Mercer was born in 1856 to a well-to-do family in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. As a young man he travelled in Europe and attended Harvard University from 1875 to 1879. Afterwards, he studied law and was admitted to the bar but never practiced, returning to Europe to travel extensively across the continent.

Towards the end of his life, Mercer published November Night Tales (1928), a collection of stories reflecting his lifelong interest in history and archaeology, his appreciation for castles and gothic fiction, and his Romantic imagination.
