Edmund Yates (1831-1894); Scottish novelist, editor, and founder of the journal, The World. He is perhaps best remembered for his Garrick Club feud with Thackeray, in which Dickens tried to intervene. Dickens took a great interest in Yates, and in 1872 Yates followed Dickens's example by touring America, giving a series of literary lectures containing many reminiscences of his friendship with Dickens.
