Thomas Bailey Aldrich

1836 - 1907

Arguable Portsmouth's most famous writer, TB Aldrich is best known for his his mischievous youth. His "Story of a Bad Boy" (1869) is still in print and inspired Mark Twain's mischevious Tom Sawyer. As a poet and editor of The Atlantic Monthly, Aldrich mixed with the Boston lieterati. But he never forgot his childhood days at Grampa Nutter's house in Portsmouth, today a museum. His compact history of Portsmouth, An Old Town by the Sea, is still a readable guide to the old port. Both his classics are reprinted here in full on the most complete Aldrich homage available online.
