Armitage, Henry


Armitage, Henry
   In “The Dunwich Horror,” the librarian of Miskatonic University (A.M.Miskatonic, Ph.D.Princeton, Litt. D.Johns Hopkins). He encounters Wilbur Whateley in the library, but refuses to let him take home a copy of the Necronomicon,sensing that it could lead to cataclysmic results. He later sees Whateley die in the library while trying to steal the book. With great effort, he deciphers Whateley’s encrypted diary and realizes the threat that the Whateley family (specifically, Whateley’s monstrous twin brother) poses to the world, and he leads the expedition to exterminate it.
