Corey Ford

Corey Ford (April 29, 1902 – July 27, 1969) was an American humorist, author, outdoorsman, and screenwriter. He was friendly with several members of the Algonquin Round Table in New York City and occasionally ate lunch there.

Ford was a member of the Class of 1923 at Columbia College of Columbia University, where he edited the humor magazine ''Jester of Columbia'' and wrote the Varsity Show ''Half Moon Inn.'' He also joined, and was expelled from, the Philolexian Society. Failing to graduate, he embarked on a career as a freelance writer and humorist. In the 1930s he was noted for satirical sketches of books and authors penned under the name "John Riddell". Theodore Dreiser was shown adopting the guise of a common workman building his newest and biggest novel from bricks and mortar. He reviewed ''Dead Lovers are Good Lovers'' as "Dead Novelists are Good Novelists." Ford's series of "Impossible Interviews" for ''Vanity Fair'' magazine featured ill-assorted celebrities, among them Stalin vs. John D. Rockefeller, Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes vs. Al Capone, Sigmund Freud vs. Jean Harlow, Sally Rand vs. Martha Graham, Gertrude Stein vs. Gracie Allen, Adolf Hitler vs. Huey Long.

Ford published 30 books and more than 500 magazine articles, many of them marked with a gregarious sense of humor, a love of dogs and "underdogs." He told many stories of the literary scene in the twenties, of headhunters in Dutch Borneo, of U.S. airmen in combat during World War II. He loved conversation and comradeship and was a great listener as well. Provided by Wikipedia
