Biography's Source:

Rev. Henry S. Whitehead (1882-1932), a Harvard graduate and an ordained deacon of the Episcopal Church, was a favorite staple of the early Weird Tales, imbuing many of his stories with a West Indies background gleaned from his years as Acting Archdeacon in the Virgin Islands. His Arkham House compendium, Jumbee and Other Uncanny Tales, is a classic of horror literature. When he died in 1932, Weird Tales ran a full-page memoriam written by Whitehead's friend and correspondent, H.P. Lovecraft.
