The novel involved close collaboration between the young author and his illustrator, Hablot Knight Browne ("Phiz"), who together visited some notorious Yorkshire schools in January 1838, in particular Bowes Academy in Greta Bridge run by headmaster William Shaw, who in 1823 had been prosecuted for criminal negligence when two of his charges went blind. Wackford Squeers was modelled on Shaw, and Dotheboys Hall on his "Academy."
