Biographical Sketch

Fred(erick) Gwynne was born July 10, 1926 in New York, NY, and died July 2, 1993, in Taneytown MD. He was an actor, author, and illustrator.

After his acting career peaked he wrote several children's books, illustrating both his own works and those of other writers. Several of his book titles indicate an appealing sense of humor.
