About Author

Stephen Leacock

Stephen Leacock was a Canadian educator, political scientist, author, and comedian. Between 1915 and 1925, he was the most well-known English-speaking comic in the world. He is well-known for his light humour and condemnation of other people's folly. Stephen Leacock was born on December 30, 1869, in Swanmore, a village near Southampton, southern England. He was the third of eleven children born to (Walter) Peter Leacock, who was born and raised at Oak Hill on the Isle of Wight, an estate purchased by his grandfather after returning from Madeira, where his family had made a fortune from plantations and Leacock's Madeira wine, founded in 1760. Agnes, Stephen's mother, was born in Soberton, the youngest daughter of the Rev. Stephen Butler and his second wife (Caroline Linton Palmer) of Bury Lodge, the Butler estate that overlooked the village of Hambledon in Hampshire. Leacock was named after Stephen Butler, the maternal grandchild of Admiral James Richard Dacres and brother of Sir Thomas Dacres Butler, Usher of the Black Rod.
