"TOM GALLON (1866-1914), British novelist and dramatist, was born in London Dec. 5 1866. He was first a clerk in a city office and then usher in a large private school, but, owing to illhealth, he had to give up routine work, and took to literature as a means of livelihood. He wrote a number of novels in which plot and incident predominate, amongst them The Kingdom of Hate (1899); A Rogue in Love (1900); and The Charity Ghost (1902). He then turned to the writing of plays, collaborating with Albert Chevalier in Memory's Garden (1902) and publishing some plays on his own account, The Christmas Party (1904); The Devil's World (1910) and The Great Gay Road (1911). He died in London Nov. 1 1914.
