Russell, William Clark, English novelist, was born at New York, Feb. 24, 1844. He is the son of Henry Russell, who composed Cheer, Boys, Cheer; There’s a Good Time Coming; A Life on the Ocean-Wave. Young Russell went to sea at 13, and served eight years. Since that time he has been an English newspaper writer and novelist. His sea-tales rank with those of Marryat and Cooper, and are deservedly popular. Among them are Jack’s Courtship, My Shipmate Louise, The Wreck of the Grosvenor, A Sailor’s Sweetheart and An Ocean-Tragedy.
