Roberts, Kenneth (Lewis)

(1885–1957) writer; born in Kennebunk, Maine. He studied at Cornell (B.A. 1908), where he was the editor of the humor magazine. He became a reporter and columnist for the Boston Sunday Post (1909–17), and also wrote verse, plays, and editorials. He was a reporter for the Saturday Evening Post during the 1920s, then began working on the first of many historical novels. He is best known for Arundel (1930), Northwest Passage (1937), and Lydia Bailey (1947). Several of his works incorporated his often conservative, antiestablishment views. He lived in Kennebunkport, Maine, and, in later years, wrote several books about locating water with a divining rod.
