His most recent visit to that country was during this year. In 1947 he spent some time in Europe, studying postwar conditions and during the war, he was there a number of times as a commentator-correspondent. Three weeks after he was born, John W. Vandercook began traveling. His first journey was from London back to the United States, where both sides of his family had lived since the early 1700's His father, John F. Vandercook helped to found the United Press and became its first president; his mother. Margaret O'Bannon Vandercook is a novelist and the author of many books for girls. After a year at Yale University, andercook decided to become an actor but the us*al interminable waits which space out the career of a would-be thespian proved too discouraging, so he turned his attention to newspaperdom. He served on the Columbus (Ohio) Citizen and from there he went on to other newspapers in Washington, D. C., and Baltimore, Md. Later in New York, his formal education as a newspaperman ended finally on the short-lived New York Graphic on which he was feature editor. In 1925, Vandercook began a ieries of long and leisurely journeys which were to go on without interruption for more .than 12 years. The first was to the interior of Dutch Guiana among the Negro tribes that live in the jungles of northern South America. From this adventure came Vandercook's first book, "Tom-Tom," i study in essay form which is itill required reading in courses of advanced anthropology in a number of American, universities. A stay on the island of Haiti, followed by months of careful historical research produced "Black Majesty" in 1928 which was a Literary'Guild selection, for many months high on the best seller lists, and which sold more than 100,000 copies. A year later, Vandercook made a long journey on foot into the unmapped northern corner of the West African Negro Republic of Liberia. On a subsequent trip to Africa he walked more than 600 miles across a part of the great Central African plateau in the French Mandate of Cameroon. .Then came an adventure in the' western Pacific, highlighted by an expedition by dugout canoe into the then unchart- ered Papuan Delta on the southern coast of the island of New Guinea. It was on this trip .that Vandercook succeeded in penetrating, without mishap, the land of an extraordinary tribe of head- collecting cannibals, most of whom had never seen a white man. Dur-, ing the same year he also crossed the primitive Island of-Malaita, in Electrolux SALES AND SERVICE O. A. BUECHLE Phone 5870-J or write 910 6th Street S. E. JOHN W. VANDERCOOK the Solomon Islands, by a previously untraveled route, discovering an unsuspected river high among Malaita's jungle-covered mountains. He also explored on foot the island Viti Levu in the Fijis. In the intervals between these journeys Vandercook returned to New York and contributed articles on travel and exploration and on world affairs to such leading publications as Harpers, Asia, National Geographic, Vogue, Country Gentleman, American Magazine, Liberty and The Saturday Evening Post. Besides the 2 books mentioned, he is the author of "Empress of the Dusk," a life of Theodora of Byzantium, several other travel books, a volume of short stories and a number of detective stories. He is currently completing work on a novel with a locale set in present day France. Apart from traveling, John W. Vandercook's chief interest is photography, which has been a necessary adjunct to his trips of exploration. A member of the councils of both the Authors League of America and of the" Authors Guild, he is an enthusiastic amateur of modern painting and, naturally enough, a collector. A part of Vandercook's ethnological collection of primitive carvings, brought back from the Solomon and Fiji Islands, is on permanent exhibition in the Brooklyn Museum of New York.
