LEROY F. "BUDDY" McHUGH started his journalism career at the City News Bureau as a copy boy in 1906. He shifted to the Chicago Evening American in 1915, and remained active as a police reporter until his retirement in 1963. He co-authored books, most well-known was Chicago Murders, published in 1945. ELIZABETH BULLOCK was an American author. She co-wrote the book Chicago Murders along with the assistance of six others. VINCENT STARRETT (1886-1974) was an American writer and newspaperman. He began his career with the Chicago Inter-Ocean in 1905 and later began working for the Chicago Daily News as a crime reporter, a feature writer and finally a war correspondent in Mexico from 1914 to 1915. Starrett turned to writing mystery and supernatural fiction for the pulp magazines during the 1920s and 1930s. He also wrote poetry, detective novels, and detective short stories primarily about Chicago sleuth Jimmie Lavender, many of which first appeared in the pulp magazine Short Stories. NELLISE CHILD (1901-19810), otherwise known as Lillian Lieberman, was an author and playwright. In her youth she was an activist of the American Communist Party, but left when she was asked to commit illegal crimes. Child then became a journalist. She began writing under the pseudonym Nellise Child with the publication of her first book, Murder Comes Home, in 1933. Child's play, "Weep for the Virgins", had little success on Broadway in 1935, but was reprised in 2012. SEWELL PEASLEE WRIGHT was a fiction writer, known for his science fiction thrillers. He wrote such titles as The Terrible Tentacles of L-472 (1930), The God in the Box (1931), and Vampires of Space (1932). VERONICA DENGEL was an author who wrote Personality Unlimited: The Beauty Blue Book, which was published in 1943, and Hold Your Man! (1943). She was known for her conservative views of women's role in society. OTTO EISENSCHIML (1880-1963) was an Austrian chemist and industrial executive in the American oil industry, who is perhaps best known for his work as a controversial author of American history, most notably for his provocative 1937 book Why Was Lincoln Murdered? which asserted that Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton orchestrated the plot to kill the president. Born and educated in Vienna, Eisenschiml obtained advanced degrees in chemistry, later immigrating to the United States as an industrial chemist, later serving as the president of the Scientific Oil Compounding Company, while simultaneously becoming a well-published inventor. His assertions regarding the Lincoln assassination plot have been well-known and controversial over time, and although they are mostly discredited by leading historians, Eisenschiml went on to write many more books on the American Civil War such as The Shadow of Lincoln's Death (1940), The Story of Shiloh (1946), and The Hidden Face of the Civil War (1961). His first book on the assassination inspired the 1942. Broadway play Your, A. Lincoln, as well as was referenced in the 2007 Disney movie National Treasure: Book of Secrets. Lightly toned. Corners rounded. Right edge torn from book. Lightly soiled on front. Otherwise, fine condition.
