J. Walker McSpadden (1874 - 1960)

Joseph Walker McSpadden was born in 1874. He is known for his authorship of Robin Hood (1891). "He was a young man of five-and-twenty, well built, though a trifle meagre, and of pale complexion. He had hair that was very nearly black, and a clean-shaven face, best described, perhaps, as of bureaucratic type. The clothes he wore were of expensive material, but had seen a good deal of service. His stand-up collar curled over at the corners, and his necktie was lilac-sprigged." (from Robin Hood)

McSpadden died in 1960.
