    • Abstract:
      Writer. William Hope Hodgson was born in Blackmore End, Essex, England, on November 15, 1877, one of twelve children of Samuel Hodgson, an Anglican clergyman, and Lissie Sarah (Brown) Hodgson. Lying about his age, Hodgson ran away to the sea at the age of thirteen; after being sent back home, he returned to the sea legally and became a merchant seaman’s apprentice from 1891 to 1895, when he attended a technical school in Liverpool. He returned to sea as a merchant seaman third mate, and was awarded a Royal Humane Society Medal in 1898 for rescuing a fellow sailor. While at sea, he became interested in body-building as a means of self-defense, as well as in photography.
