William Hepworth Dixon

English historian and traveller

In his youth, he was preparing for commercial activity. At the beginning of 1846, he decided to pursue a literary career. For some time he was the editor of the Cheltenham Journal.

He wrote a number of articles on social issues for The Daily News, among other things, a description of London prisons, which later appeared in a separate edition: "The London prisons". These works prompted him to write a biography of Howard, which has withstood 5 reprints. This was followed by Penn's biography, a book to which he owes his fame and in which Dixon corrected the erroneous information reported by Macaulay about the famous Quaker.
