Henry Augustus Shute was a graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy (1875) and Harvard University (1879). He was born and lived in Exeter, New Hampshire, where he worked as a lawyer and a judge of the municipal court. Sometime in the 1890's, Henry Shute began writing for the Exeter News-Letter. His weekly stories based on recollections from boyhood were popular, however, it was not until the publication of THE REAL DIARY OF A REAL BOY (1902) that Shute acquired national recognition. He went on to write nineteen other books and published extensively in the SATURDAY EVENING POST (1925-1928). Named the "Mark Twain of New England," Shute's humorous, innocent, and 'jolly' stories continue to "provide valuable insight into the customs of his hometown."
