Quick Reference


born in North Carolina, began his journalistic career in 1880, reported on the South for the New York World (1881–83), edited the Raleigh State Chronicle (1883–85), The Forum (1890–95), the Atlantic Monthly (1896–99), and the World's Work (1900–1913). The prestige thus acquired caused his appointment as ambassador to Great Britain (1913–18), in which position he helped Anglo-American relations, sympathizing strongly with Great Britain even while the U.S. was attempting to maintain neutrality in World War I. His Life and Letters (3 vols., 1922–25, Pulitzer Prize) was the work of Burton J. Hendrick.
