William Hickling Prescott

Author Code: AWHP

Born: May 4, 1796 - Salem, Massachusetts, USA

Died: Jan. 28, 1859 - Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Educated at Harvard (1814), Prescott decided not to follow in his lawyer father's footsteps. From 1815 to 1817, he sought medical treatment in Europe for an eye injury which had virtually blinded him. He became interested in history with special emphasis on Spanish culture. In 1837, he published A History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella and followed this in 1843 with A History of the Conquest of Mexico. A History of the Conquest of Peru was published in 1847 and another major work, which was not completed because of his failing eyesight and health, was the three volume A History of the Reign of Philip the Second (1858). Prescott is much respected in historical as well as literary circles. His narration of the Histories show a great deal of literary talent as well as a clear understanding of facts. Prescott is recognized as one of America's great historians.
