RICHARD HARDING DAVIS. Inscribed Signature: "Robert Dechert/Very Sincerely His/Richard Harding Davis", 4¾x2¼. Richard Harding Davis (1864-1916) was managing editor of Harper's Weekly magazine by the age of 26. The author of romantic novels and short stories, he was best known as a war correspondent. In Cuba to cover the revolution against Spain, he filed the famous story of the strip search of a young Cuban woman, which did much to inflame American opinion, but resigned in protest because William Randolph Hearst had changed his story to say that male guards had conducted the search. When the U.S. sent troops to the island, Davis did much to popularize Teddy Roosevelt and his "Rough Riders." Covering World War I, he was captured by the German army in Belgium and almost executed as a British spy before finally convincing his captors he was an American reporter. Arrow drawn in pencil (unknown hand) to Davis' signature. Slightly soiled. Paperclip impression at bottom center, touching "H" in "Harding". Otherwise, fine condition.
