Summary/Abstract: Son of Winfield Scott Lovecraft (1853-1898), travelling salesman, and Sarah Susan Phillips (1857-1921), Howard Phillips Lovecraft (August 20, 1890, Providence, Rhode Island – March 13, 1937, Providence) was raised, after his father’s death, by his mother and two aunts, but especially by his grandfather, Whipple Van Buren Phillips (1833- 1904), a wealthy industrialist. Frail and unhealthy – just like Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849), whose works he read when he was about seven – Lovecraft completed his education not in school, but by individual study, becoming acquainted with the Greek and Roman classics when six, with chemistry when nine, with geography and astronomy when only twelve.
