Julian Hawthorne (1846-1934) was an American writer and journalist. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the son of the famous novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne. Hawthorne spent much of his childhood in Europe, where his father was serving as the US consul in Liverpool and Rome. After completing his education, Hawthorne worked as a journalist and became the editor of the New York Tribune in 1882. He also wrote numerous works of fiction, including several novels and short stories. Hawthorne's writing style was heavily influenced by his father's work, and he often explored themes of morality, guilt, and sin in his own writing. He also wrote about politics, history, and social issues, and was a frequent contributor to magazines and newspapers. Hawthorne spent ten years abroad, studied civil engineering in Germany and the United States, worked as an engineer in the New York City Dock Department for General McClellan (1870–1872).
