"George Harvey was American ambassador to England from 1921 to 1923. As Bell mentions later in this memoir, Harvey once worked on the Chicago Daily News staff. He also was a reporter in New York and later editor of Joseph Pulitzer's New York World. Before he was sent to London as ambassador, Harvey edited a weekly journal in Washington, D.C., Harvey's Journal. The weekly carried Harvey's fiery criticism of then-president Woodrow Wilson, his war policy, and the League of Nations."
