J. J. Bell

a.k.a. John Joy Bell

Author Code: EJJB

Born: Jun. 7, 1871 - Hillhead, Glasgow, Scotland

Died: Nov. 14, 1934 - Aberdeen, Scotland

Educated at Kelvinside Academy, Morrison's Academy and the University of Glasgow, Bell turned to journalism after leaving school. He worked for the Glasgow Evening Times and from 1898 also as a sub-editor for the Scots Pictorial. He wrote many articles describing Glasgow life and Glaswegians, inventing the very popular character of Wee Macgreegor. The stories of the latter were subsequently collected in book form and published in 1902 as Wee Macgreegor The book was a great success and was followed up during World War I with Wee Macgreegor Enlists (1916). Bell also wrote some poetry and some excellent detective stories. It is very unfortunate that Bell is largely forgotten today. His other works include Jack of All Trades (1899), Ethel (1903), Jess and Co. (1904), Thou Fool (1907), The Whalers (1914), Till the Clock Stops (1916), Atlantic Gold (1918), Secret Cards (1922), The Invisible Net (1924), Gambler's Hope (1929), The Women (1932) and Melodies and Memories (1934).
