Ernest Thayer

a.k.a. Ernest Lawrence Thayer, Phineas Thayer *

Author Code: AERT

Born: Aug. 14, 1863 - Lawrence, Massachusetts, USA

Died: Aug. 21, 1940 - Santa Barbara, California, USA

Educated at Harvard University, where he graduated magnum cum laude in philosophy, Thayer was also editor of the Harvard Lampoon. A friend of William Randolph Hearst, Thayer was hired by him to be a humourous columnist for the San Francisco Examiner in 1886. In 1888, he published Casey (Casey at the Bat) which made him famous. Unfortunately, and in spite of much humourous journalism, this seems to be his only fame and he is known as the one-poem author. Nevertheless, Thayer contributed many comic poems to Hearst's New York Journal during the 1890s. Partially deaf, he did not participate in the First World War. He never received nor asked for any payments for the numerous performances of his poem. He married in 1913 and moved to California where he remained until his death.
