Geoffrey Trease

Although he was well known for his stories for boys, Geoffrey Trease did not contribute heavily to boys' papers, contributing only a handful of stories to Boy's Own Paper in the late 1930s. He was, however, a regular in The Children's Newspaper with a number of stories and serials published in the post-Arthur Mee era between 1949 and 1960. He notably published a series of stories featuring The Silver Gentleman (1950) and the serial The Silver Gentleman Again (1951-52). He also contributed to Collins Young Elizabethan, including the serial Word of Caesar (1955-56).

Here from the clippings file is an obituary from 1998.
