Ward Phillips first appeared in the story Through the Gates of the Silver Key (H.P. Lovecraft and E. Hoffmann Price, 1933).

Elderly author of Providence, Rhode Island. Phillips was a writer of tales for the pulps and friend of Randolph Carter, and he was a party in the dispute over Carter's will. He eventually vanished, though no serious investigation of his disappearance was made. Some dreamers say he lives on in Ennon, the Dreamlands' land of poets.[1]
