Howe Hall

Rosalys Hall

Rosalys Haskell Hall (March 27, 1914- April 17, 2006) was an American author of children’s books.

Hall was seven times descended from Roger Williams and the great-grand niece of Maud Howe Elliott. She attended Ecole Sevigne, in Paris, France, New Jersey College for Women, and Ethical Culture Norman Training School.

Hall was a seller of children's books in New York at Doubleday Bookshop, from 1938-1944; and at Longman's, Green & Co. (now merged with David McKay Co., Inc., under McKay name) she worked as editor in Children's Book Department beginning in 1944. She was the fourth generation to write books beginning with Julia Ward Howe, author of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic". She was the published author of seventeen children's books. Several of her books were illustrated by Kurt Werth.

A great animal lover (many of her children's books featured animals, including "A Bone for Jonesy"), Hall was known throughout Newport as a dog-walker.
