David Ross Locke (1833-1888)

David Ross Locke's greatest influence was through his writings and lectures using the pseudonym Petroleum Vesuvius Nasby, an anti-abolitionist postmaster. The Nasby letters acridly satirized the plight of blacks in the South and the complicity of northern politicians in that plight.
