W. F. Harvey

a.k.a. William Freyer Harvey

Author Code: EWFH

Born: (?) 1885 - (?) Yorkshire, England

Died: Jun. 4, 1937 - Letchworth, Hertforshire, England

Educated at Bootham School in York and Balliol College, Oxford, Harvey received his MA in 1910. He then studied medicine at Leeds University which was interrupted by the First World War. From a Quaker family, he joined the Friends Ambulance Unit and spent time in Flanders. He later returned to complete his studies and graduated in 1917. He was then commissioned as a surgeon lieutenant in the Royal Navy. He was later awarded the Albert medal for saving the life of an engineer who was trapped in a flooding engine room. Unfortunately, Harvey was overcome by oil fumes and suffered permanent damage to his lungs. This would have a direct bearing on his early demise at the age of only 52. Following the war he worked for a time as Warden of the Fircroft Working Men's College in Birmingham, but his health forced him to retire. He had begun writing stories, which were highly influenced by the writings of Edgar Allan Poe, in the early 1900s and published his first collection, Midnight House, in 1910. The majority of his work could be classified as supernatural, although he did produce some excellent detective stories. In 1928, he published The Beast With Five Fingers, which was undoubtedly his best work and one which was subsequently made into a film in 1946 starring Peter Lorre. His other works include Moods and Tenses (1933), The Mysterious Mr. Badman (1934), We Were Seven (1936), Mr. Murray and the Boococks (1938 Posthumous), Twelve Strange Cases (1951 Posthumous) and The Lake (1951 Posthumous).
