Mini Bio (1)

"Newfie" George Hippisley was known as a very reclusive writer who used the pseudonym George Hembert Westley to preserve his privacy. During his 26 years as a humor writer and editor for the Boston Evening Transcript, few if any of the workers there knew who he really was. It was reported that Hippisley, a lifelong bachelor, would spend most all of his free time exploring the documents room of the Boston Public Library. Hippisley was a descendant of one of two brothers who came to Newfoundland from England in the early 1800s.
