Colcord, Lincoln (1883 - 1947)
Genre: General Fiction
Though technically born on a ship that was rounding Cape Horn on its way to China, Colcord's home was Searsport, Maine. He came from five generations of sea-faring men and it's not surprising that he wrote about the sea. Colcord graduated from Univ. of Maine in 1905 and was a Washington correspondent for the Philadelphia Ledger around the time of the first World War.
