Robert Barr

a.k.a. Luke Sharp *

Author Code: ERBA

Born: Sep. 16, 1849 - Glasgow, Scotland

Died: Oct. 21, 1912 - Woldingham, England

Barr's family immigrated to Canada when he was only four years old. He received his formal education at Toronto Normal School and after graduating became a schoolteacher. During the 1870's he began to contribute stories to American and Canadian newspapers and was eventually hired as a reporter by the Detroit Free Press. Over the next few years, Barr rose to editor status and in 1881 was sent to England to establish a weekly edition. He remained in England and founded the Idler in 1892 with Jerome K. Jerome as his co-editor. Barr attracted many great writers to contribute including Mark Twain, Conan Doyle, Stephen Crane and others. In 1902, he became the sole proprietor of the Idler and continued to run it until 1911.Barr wrote many novels in addition to numerous short stories and essays/articles. His character of Eugene Valmont, a parody of Sherlock Holmes, is said to have inspired Agatha Christie in the creation of Hercule Poirot. His works include The Face and the Mask (1894), In the Midst of Alarms (1894), Tekla: A Romance of Love and War (1898), The Victors (1901), A Rock in the Baltic (1906), The Triumphs of Eugene Valmont (1906), Stanleigh's Millions (1909), The Sword Maker (1910) and The Palace of Logs (1912).
