Pecks Bad Boy and His Pa by George W. Peck

Mr. Peck was born in New York in 1840, but he lived in Wisconsin from 1843 until his death, April 16, 1916. He was connected with newspapers at Whitewater, Jefferson, La Crosse, and Milwaukee. He founded the Sun at La Crosse in 1874, and later removed it to Milwaukee, where he called it Pecks Sun. At one time he was unquestionably the best-known writer in Wisconsin, and the best-known Wisconsin writer throughout the country, which fame came to him through his Pecks Bad Boy sketches. He was also the author of Pecks Compendium of Fun, Pecks Sunshine, together with almost countless sketches which usually were in some way connected with the mischief-loving, mirth-provoking Bad Boy. Neighbors of the Pecks in Whitewater tend, by their recollection of the former Governor, to confirm the suspicion that not all of Pecks Bad Boy was fiction, and that the author himself may have played a not inconsiderable part in the scenes therein depicted. Mr. Pecks fellow-citizens in Milwaukee honored him with the mayoralty, and the citizens of the state made him Governor from 1891 to 1895. He had a keen memory for his old friends; and citizens, both young and old, who could remind him of some of his old neighbors in Whitewater or Jefferson were always sure of a pleasant chat with him.
