Descrizione

Peck's Bad Boy and His Pa first appeared in book form some 75 years ago, in 1888. Its author was George Wilbur Peck, a Wisconsin printer and newspaper owner, who eventually served two terms as Governor of Wis consin. Peck was born in Henderson, New York, in 1840, but was taken as a child to Wisconsin, where he spent most of his later life. His earlier years seem to have been a succession of small printing jobs and failing business enterprises, until he entered the Union Army in 1868. After his release he worked in New York on a newspaper in the Pomeroy chain for a time, then bought a news paper in Lacrosse, Wisconsin from Pomeroy and returned to Wisconsin. It was not until the early 1880's, however, that he achieved any success; by this time his paper, Peck's Sun, had been moved to Milwaukee. His paper was a weekly, more a collection of editorial humor than a newspaper in the modern sense, and in it, in 1882, first appeared the nasty pranks which Hennery the Bad Boy played upon his drunken father.
