About Author

T. S. Arthur

Timothy Shay Arthur, or T. S. Arthur was born on June 6, 1809, and died on March 6, 1885. S. Arthur was a well-known American author in the 1800s. Many people know him for the 1854 book Ten Nights in a Bar-Room and What I Saw There, which was a temperance story. It helped make Americans dislike alcohol. When he wrote his stories with care and compassion, he shared beliefs and ideas that were common in American "respectable middle class" life. A story of his called "An Angel in Disguise" shows how much he believed in the healing and changing power of love. He also wrote dozens of stories for Godey's Lady's Book, which was the most famous American monthly magazine before the Civil War. For many years, he published and edited his own magazine, Arthur's Home Magazine, which was modeled after Godey's. Arthur did a lot to explain and spread the values, beliefs, and habits that made up proper middle-class life in America. He is almost lost today. While a child, Arthur lived in Fort Montgomery, New York. He was born in Newburgh, New York. By 1820, Arthur's miller father had moved to Baltimore, Maryland, and Arthur went to school there for a short time.
