Ernest Hemingway inspired me to become a war journalist.
“Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American novelist, short story writer, and journalist. His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations….
…he killed himself in mid-1961.
Almost exactly 35 years after Hemingway's death, on July 1, 1996, his granddaughter Margaux Hemingway killed herself... making her "the fifth person in four generations of her family to commit suicide.”
