Author
    (November 10, 1871-March 12, 1947)
    Born in St. Louis, Missouri
    Wrote the novels 'The Celebrity' (1898), 'Richard Carvel' (1899), 'The Crisis' (1901), 'The Crossing' (1904), 'Coniston' (1906), 'Mr. Crewe's Career' (1908), 'A Modern Chronicle' (1910), 'The Inside of the Cup' (1913) and 'A Far Country' (1915)
    He has been completely overshadowed by the other Winston Churchill.
    Lists of best-sellers from the early 20th century have to include a 'no, not that Winston Churchill' footnote.
    He twice ran unsuccessfully for governor of New Hampshire.
    No doubt contributing to his latter obscurity was his decision to quit at the height of his success (1917).
    Shortly before his death he said, 'It is very difficult now for me to think of myself as a writer of novels, as all that seems to belong to another life.'
    His novels were influential on the naturalist style in American literature.
    Like the other Churchill, he took up painting and became well known for his landscapes.
    He and the British Winston Churchill carried on a friendly correspondence.
    In 1903, the other Churchill wrote to him, 'I propose to become Prime Minister of Great Britain. Wouldn't it be a great lark if you could be President of the United States at the same time?'
