These stimulating bits of history in their rights-for-vvomen annals ai'e set down by Dunbar M. Hinrichs in his just-published novel, "Mrs. Captain Kidd." Hinrichs, who worked out the comprehensive automobile insurance policy now in general use, retired from General Motors &- surance Co. at the age of 43 to devote himself to writing. After his daughter, Nancy, voiced a burning interest in pirates, he delved into research on the life and times of Captain Kidd and discovered that the bold captain's wife was even a more colorful figure than he. i: * * • • Even though he finally was tried for piracy and hanged for murder in England, Captain Kidd was not a pirate, says Hini-ichs, but sailed as a duly licensed privateer under the flag of England, and when he seized a ships cargo it was always from the fleet of a nation with which England was at war.
