Haggard, Sir Henry Rider

Sir Henry Rider Haggard, 1856–1925, English novelist. From 1875 to 1881 he served in the government of South Africa, which was the scene of many of his highly popular romances. King Solomon's Mines (1885), Allan Quatermain (1887), and She (1887), all in rough but colorful prose, are among his best-known works. He also wrote a study of colonization in South Africa and works on agricultural problems. He was knighted in 1912 for his welfare work in England.

See his autobiography, The Days of My Life (1926); biography by his daughter L. R. Haggard (1951).
