Arthur Stanwood Pier
American author and teacher (English composition at Harvard's) who wrote in many genres—science fiction, school stories, histories, etc; best remembered for his turn-of-the-century boarding school stories of St. Timothy's, ["something more than wholesome and interesting—though that is almost praise enough."—The Outlook, 15 Nov. 1904]
