Donald Grant Mitchell
The American essayist Donald Grant Mitchell (1822–1908) had adopted the name J.K. Marvel for his contributions to the ‘Morning Courier and New York Enquirer’ in 1846. A typo gave him his permanent pen name of Ik Marvel.
One of his books, ‘Dream Life, a Fable of the Seasons’, was dedicated to Washington Irving.
