Hooper, Horace Everett

(8 dic. 1859, Worcester, Mass., EE.UU.–13 jun. 1922, Bedford Hills, N.Y.).

Editor estadounidense. Abandonó la escuela a los 16 años y se dedicó a comercializar libros. Con la colaboración del Times de Londres, produjo la reimpresión de la novena edición de la Encyclopædia Britannica (1875–89), que tuvo un éxito resonante. En 1901, él y Walter Jackson adquirieron todos los derechos de la Britannica, los que conservaron hasta 1920. Hooper proyectó y publicó la décima edición de la obra (1902–03), uno de cuyos editores fue su hermano Franklin Henry Hooper (n. 1862–m. 1940); la undécima edición (1910–11), afamada por su prosa rica y sosegada, además de encarnar un concepto completamente nuevo de enciclopedia, y la duodécima (1922).
