HARBY, Isaac, dramatist, born in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1788; died in New York city, 14 November, 1828. Isaac's grandfather was a Jewish lapidary of the emperor of Morocco, who, under the displeasure of that monarch, was forced to fly from the country. His son emigrated to South Carolina, and established himself in Charleston. After studying law Isaac taught on Edisto island, and afterward edited " The Quiver," "The Investigator," and the " Southern Patriot," and was favorably known as an essayist and dramatic writer and critic. The year before his death he removed to New York, and contributed to "The Evening Post" and other newspapers. A sketch of his life and writings was published by Henry L. Pinckney and A. Moise (Charleston, 1829). He is the author of the dramas " Alexander Severus " (1807); " The Gordian Knot " (1807); "Alberti " (1819); and several orations in pamphlet-form.
