Lyman Hotchkiss Bagg (December 24, 1846 - December 23, 1911) was an American author and journalist, among the first of the literary types to move into No. 107 Waverly Place, New York. The bachelor journalist and writer lived there since 1876; writing for the New York World among other publications. In 1900 he was still a resident of the house.
Lyman Hotchkiss Bagg was born in West Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts, the son of Richard Bagg (1812–1852) and Susan Atwater (1817–1895). He attended Yale University, 1865-1869. He was the editor of the Yale Literary Magazine, 1868-1869, and of the College Courant, 1870-1871. From 1876 to 1882 he wrote a Monday column, "College Chronicle", for the New York World. Readers started sending in letters address to Coll Chron. He eventually modified the abbreviation and adopted the pseudonym Karl Kron.
