Kummer, Frederic Arnold: The Film of Fear. v1. 6 Mar 2013

Frederic Arnold Kumme (5 August 1873, Catonsville, Maryland, USA; 22 November 1943, Baltimore, Maryland, USA) American author, playwright and screen writer Frederic Arnold Kummer was born on 5 August, 1873 at Cantonsville, Maryland, to Arnold and Mary Morris Kummer. His father, who had emigrated from Germany in 1859 and had fought in the American Civil War, was part owner of Kummer & Becker, a banking and brokerage house in Baltimore that also acted as agents for the North German Lloyd Steamship Line.
Before Kummer turned to writing full time in 1907, he had been the chief engineer for the American Wood Preserving Company and later general manager of the Eastern Paving Block Company. Kummer was an 1894 graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where he had earned a degree in civil engineering. In 1901 he was awarded the Collingwood prize by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) for a paper he wrote on wood block paving techniques

Excerpt
Ruth Morton finished her cup of coffee, brushed a microscopic crumb from her embroidered silk kimono, pushed back her loosely arranged brown hair, and resumed the task of opening her mail.
It was in truth a task, and one that consumed an inordinate amount of her valuable time. And her time was extremely valuable. Computed upon the basis of her weekly salary of one thousand dollars, it figured out just $142.85 per day, or very nearly $6 per hour, or 10 cents per minute, for each minute and hour of the twenty-four. As a motion picture star, she had the satisfaction of knowing that she was paid a slightly larger salary than had been, until recently, received by the President of the United States.
