Although Boyd's parents were North Carolinians, he was born in Pennsylvania. He graduated from Princeton, where he first met Burt who was an English instructor there. Boyd served in World War I on the Italian front and at St. Mihiel and in the Meuse-Argonne. Illness developed during the war forced his early retirement, and he returned to his people's home in Southern Pines. There he wrote some of his best novels. Burt, who was his neighbor and the closest of his friends, remembers him in this essay.
