Thomas Chalmers Harbaugh

Thomas Chalmers Harbaugh (January 13, 1849 – 1924) was a poet and novelist.

He was born in Middletown, Maryland in 1849. In 1851 his parents moved to Casstown, Ohio. He worked for his father, who was a house painter, but in 1867 he began writing. He wrote two short Western stories for Street & Smith's Literary Album, the first published on August 31, 1867, and the second January 11, 1868. His first work for Beadle was a short article, "The Two Christmases," published as a space filler in 1873, in No. I of the new series of New and Old Friends. He next wrote a serial, "Nick o' the Night," which was begun in No. 322 of the Saturday Journal, in 1876, and reprinted as No. 23 of the Half-Dime Library. His third was "The Hidden Lodge," a Half-Dime in 1878. He had, however, previously published some poems of sorts and a number of short stories in the Saturday Journal, and a few novels elsewhere. "Nightingale Nat" and "Dandy Jack" also came in 1878. He died in 1924.
