Haniel Long was born in Rangoon, Burma, in 1888, and brought to the United States at the age of three. He was educated at Exeter and Harvard, where he began to show his talent as a writer of "romantic verse and vigorous prose." Long later went on to be an English instructor at the Carnegie Institute of Technology, later known as Carnegie Mellon University. On top of this he also wrote for various magazines and newspapers, in order to raise enough income to support his family (wife Alice and son Anton). In 1932 several writers, including Long, came together to form 'Writers' Editions', with the aim of working cooperatively to publish each others books. Writers' Editions published 17 books, until a paper shortage during World War II forced them to cease publication. Long died in 1956.
