War Correspondent
Vincent Starrett


Volume 10: The Vincent Starrett Memorial Library

The Toronto-born, Chicago-based bookman Vincent Starrett is today remembered for his mystery fiction. But as well as being a superb story-teller and an influential columnist for the Chicago Tribune, he served as a war correspondent. As the editor Peter Ruber points out in his introduction, Starrett covered the 1914 war with Mexico and issued highly readable, human interest dispatches from Vera Cruz. These are collected in War Correspondent. Series. Hardcover, with photographic jacket.

Devoted exclusively to Starrett's days as the Chicago Daily News war correspondent in Mexico during 1914-15. Includes a score of his newspaper dispatches, reminiscences about Richard Harding Davis, amusing incidents in the daily life of a war correspondent, short stories, and an unpublished 3-act play called "War Correspondent" he co-authored in 1929 with Gail Borden. With rare photos, many never before published.
