Foxhall Daingerfield

The March 15 1927 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained an excerpt from The Linden Walk Tragedy, a novel by a man named Foxhall Daingerfield:


Because Mr. Daingerfield has such an awesome name, I looked him up on Google. There have been actually at least two Foxhall Daingerfields in existence. The older Daingerfield is mentioned here – he appears to have been an ancestor of the younger Daingerfield, who lived a comparatively short lifespan: 1887 to 1933.

The Linden Walk Tragedy was eventually published in 1929. Another of Daingerfield’s works, The Southern Cross, is available online.
