Hooper, John (1905 - )

Genre: Non-Fiction, Poetry

John Simpson Hooper was born in Castine, ME, moved to Auburn and attended Edward Little High School, Philips Andover Academy, Bates college, and Wesleyan University. He moved to Brattleboro, VT in 1933 and opened an independent book publishing business -- Stephen Daye Press -- named after the first man to operate a printing establishment in America. The press concentrated on non-fiction materials about northern New England, a slant also reflected in his own publications.
