Henry Seidel Canby

Henry Seidel Canby (September 6, 1878 – April 5, 1961) was a critic, editor, and Yale University professor.

A scion of a Quaker family that arrived in Wilmington, Delaware, around 1740 and grew to regional prominence through milling and business affairs, Henry Seidel Canby was a son of Edward T. Canby. Canby was born in Wilmington, and attended Wilmington Friends School. He graduated from Yale in 1899, then taught at the university until becoming a professor in 1922.

Following a four-year stint as the editor of the Literary Review of the ''New York Evening Post'', Canby became one of the founders and editors of the ''Saturday Review of Literature'', serving as the last until 1936. His notes on the work of Vilfredo Pareto in 1933 in the ''Saturday Review'' helped launch the Pareto vogue of the 1930s.

He was the father of Edward T. Canby (1912-1998), a noted reviewer, radio-show host, folklorist and early advocate of electronic music. Provided by Wikipedia
