The cover for "The Soul of a People" by Harold Fielding Hall can be found here: https://librivox.org/uploads/covers/Salvationist.zip

Would someone be willing to change the name of the author's page to his full name (Harold Fielding Hall)? It would also be nice to have a blurb for him. Perhaps something like this?: Harold Fielding Hall was an Englishman who lived much of his life in British Burma, serving as a high-ranking official in the colonial government. He wrote many books including "The Soul of a People", "A People at School", "Thibaw's Queen", "One Immortality", "The Hearts of Men", "The Passing of Empire", "The Field of Honour", "The Nature of War and Its Causes", "The World Soul", "Burmese Palace Tales", "The Way of Peace", "Love's Legend", and "The Inward Light".

A quick explanation of how our author database works
As many authors wrote books under a pen name for various reasons each has a primary name , usually his pen name but not always and 1 to ? other names which are linked so that if you search for mark twain you'll get his books and if you search for Samuel Clemens you will also.
So he wrote under H Fielding. possibly because British colonial officers were not encouraged /prevented from writing books while serving or maybe cos his mum was a fielding and he didn't like his dad or who knows. So the books we read generally have what is written on the title page - but not always,
So his "real name" will only be used as a search name not as a display name - well that's the theory , it doesn't always work out, some wrote under a variety of names so in the end all we can hope is that they can be searched for.
I'll pass it onbut it would be good if you could add your source , we like having sources :D

I added his full name. The database entry already had Harold Fielding, but I see an Archive scan of the book where his name is printed as H. Fielding Hall, so adding the additional surname is warranted. :)

I haven't found anything as a bio. Where did you find that information?

We can enter biographical info, but we don't enter a list of books written by the author. :)

Great! Thanks for the explanation, Anne, and for adding "Hall", Tricia!

The National Library of Ireland says his name was Harold Patrick Fielding-Hall. Looks like his middle name was Patrick and his surname was hyphenated: http://sources.nli.ie/Record/PS_UR_037590

"A Dictionary of Literary Pseudonyms in the English Language" says he sometimes went by the name Henry rather than Harold: https://books.google.ca/books?id=qQoeCwAAQBAJ&pg=PA74&lpg=PA74&dq=harold+patrick+fielding+hall&source=bl&ots=J0gk7ANLwI&sig=Y3h1PbhU3Q2m0Mde-qxYqWpN1zk&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjUiYfP07vcAhWniOAKHU6gD5gQ6AEISDAK#v=onepage&q=harold%20patrick%20fielding%20hall&f=false

It would be nice to have at least a sentence or two of biography. Considering that this book is largely autobiographical, that shouldn't be too difficult for someone who has read it, although I have not. I confess that I derived the biographical statements I provided above from a review of "The Soul of a People" found on goodreads, but my impression is that it is supported by the text of the book itself. At the very least, a superficial glance over the two books by this author on Project Gutenberg shows that Fielding-Hall was an Englishman who lived for some time in British Burma and who wrote multiple books on religion, with a particular interest in Buddhism.
