About Author

J. J. Bell

John Joy Bell, also known as J.J. Bell, was a Scottish author and journalist. Born at 4 Bothwell Terrace in Hillhead, Glasgow, he was the eldest son of tobacco producer James Taylor Bell. Bell attended Kelvinside Academy and Morrison's Academy in Crieff. He attended the University of Glasgow and studied chemistry. After becoming a journalist, Bell worked for the Glasgow Evening Times and was a sub-editor for the Scots Pictorial. His pieces depicted the lives of working-class Glaswegians and were frequently written in the vernacular. He devised the character of 'Wee Macgreegor' for his Evening Times pieces, and the stories became so successful that they were published as a book and eventually adapted into a film. Bell has frequently been condemned for being too sentimental, but it is also claimed that his vernacular was authentically representative, which contributed to their popularity. Bell's publications, however, have become more disregarded in recent years. He was buried in the churchyard of St Machar's Cathedral in Aberdeen. The burial is at the north-east corner of the church.
