LITTLE, Harvey D., journalist, born in Wethersfield, Connecticut, in 1803; died in Columbus, Ohio, 22 August, 1833. He was the son of poor parents, who removed to the west about 1815, settling in Franklin county, Ohio, which was then mostly a wilderness. His early educational advantages were, of course, limited, but, by being apprenticed to a printer in Columbus and using all his opportunities, he became, by the time he was of age, an excellent English scholar. He early developed a talent for poetry, and was in the habit of printing his verses in the various papers with which he successively became connected. He afterward studied law, and was admitted to the bar, but family considerations induced him to return to newspaper work, and at the time of his death, which occurred suddenly from Asiatic cholera, he was editing the "Eclectic and Medical Botanist." His poems first attracted attention about 1830, and were written over the signature of "Velasquez."
