Hide Profile

Thomas Augustine Daly was an American author and lecturer, best known for his humorous verse. Born in Philadelphia, he became a journalist, and used his ear for language to publish humorous verse and jokes in Italian and Irish dialects. He also wrote other columns and lectured extensively, and managed the Catholic Standard. His humor was generally rather gentle and old-fashioned, but he remained popular for more than forty years by appealing to a wide audience.
