Henry Kitchell Webster (1875-1932) was an American author of pulp fiction. He was born in Illinois and attended Hamilton college. He married Mary Ward Orth in 1901 and they had three sons. He wrote magazine stories and novels under several pseudonyms as well as his own name. In later years he was able to dictate his novels at the rate of 20,000 words a week.
The contract for the two million bushel grain elevator, Calumet K, had been let to MacBride & Company, of Minneapolis, in January, but the superstructure was not begun until late in May, and at the end of October it was still far from completion. Ill luck had attended Peterson, the constructor, especially since August. MacBride, the head of the firm, disliked unlucky men, and at the end of three months his patience gave out, and he telegraphed Charlie Bannon to leave the job he was completing at Duluth and report at once at the home office.
