GWL Driscoll column 1938 - General George Warburton Lewis Lewis and his...
General George Warburton Lewis Lewis and his wife, Zoraida, are back in Manhattan, after a year in Arkansas for the General's health and writing. The General's General's title and occasional bad health come from long service with dark-skinned dark-skinned dark-skinned armies in the tropics. I'm told he's written his biography, biography, and I hope it's true. He once promised I should write the foreword if ever he did the story of his life. In one of his Central American wars he captured the daughter of the Minister of War of Nicaragua Nicaragua or some such country. She's a little Spanish beauty, and sings Spanish songs so charmingly that the General hardly finds time to write about his many battles. battles. Lewis was born in Kansas. I first met him in Porto Rico. There he headed the Insular Police, Police, a military body that's done much to keep that island happy and peaceful. The General is six feet six, thin as a rail, past 57, and can stand on his head or skin a cat with any high school boy. The noise of traffic in New York drives him nearly crazy. He - finds a sunny spot in Arkansas or Kansas Kansas and retreats for a while from the clatter. His last major assignment assignment was in Liberia, where he trained the native army. Some of these rangy country boys get around and get things done! . (Copyright. 1938. McNaught Syndicate)
