Eric Knight

Eric Knight was born in 1897 in Yorkshire, England, the countryside that was the background for Lassie Come-Home. He moved to the United States as a teenager. After graduating from Cambridge Latin School in Massachusetts, Mr. Knight married and settled on a farm in Pennsylvania, where Lassie Come-Home was written and where the collie who inspired the book is buried. Mr. Knight was killed while serving in the U.S. Army during World War II.
