By Mike Watson
Rev. A.C. Wyckoff wrote books, primarily for the young readers of America, from the late 1920s through the early 1950s.
Boys all across the nation waited with anticipation for the next installment of the adventures of the courageous Mercer Boys, the mystery hunters.
These wonderful books were reprinted at least into the 1960s. Collectors still seek some of the more elusive volumes, particularly those that were not reprinted in the years after World War II, though most of the Mercer Boys series did have a new wave of readers in the 1950s.
Brother Wyckoff pastored the Presbyterian Church in Columbia from 1943 until his untimely death in 1953.
His last three books were penned in Columbia. He also wrote plays for his church groups and had several articles printed in Boys Life and Open Road for Boys as well as other periodicals.
His works included, in alphabetical order:
He and his wife were interred in the Columbia City Cemetery.
