George Alfred Townsend

a.k.a. Gath *

Author Code: AGAT

Born: Jan. 30, 1841 - Georgetown, Delaware, USA

Died: Apr. 15, 1914 - New York City, New York, USA

Educated at Central High School in Philadelphia, Townsend received his BA degree in 1860 and began working as a news editor for the Philadelphia Inquirer. The following year he took over the city editorship of the Philadelphia Press. Having been writing since his early school days, Townsend published his first work, a play called The Bohemians, in 1861. During the Civil War, he was a war correspondent for the New York Herald and the New York World newspapers. He covered the Lincoln assassination in 1865 and his reports were subsequently published as Life, Crime and Capture of John Wilkes Booth (1865). In 1867, he moved to Washington, D.C. and over the next decade produced a number of politically-oriented works. He continued in journalism and his columns and articles were published in all of the major newspapers across America. He moved to Maryland in 1884 and purchased a large estate which he named Gathland, after his favorite pseudonym 'Gath'. The estate later became part of Gathland State Park in 1949. His other works include Campaigns of a Non-Combatant and His Romaunt Abroad During the War (1866), The New World Compared With the Old (1869), Lost Abroad (1870), Washington Outside and Inside (1873), Tales of the Chesapeake (1880), Bohemian Days (1880), The Entailed Hat (1883), Katy of Catoctin (1884), Poems of Men and Events (1899) and Poems of the Delaware Peninsula (1911).
