John Reed Death date

I am now working on Smoke by Ivan Turgenev (1818-1883), translated by Constance Garnett (1861-1937), with an Introduction by John Reed. There was an American journalist by that name (1887-1920) who visited and died in Russia. But there is no mention in his Wikipedia article of him being the one who introduced the edition of Smoke published by The Modern Library in 1919.

Can I assume that this man wrote the introduction? Or can anyone point me to another John Reed who did write the introduction? Or is 1920 early enough for me to use the introduction without being sure?

The version I want to use as text source, with John Reed's Introduction, comes from the University of Adelaide ebook library, who say that that it is in the Public Domain in Australia (death+70). I think is far better than the one done by Wikisource which has Edward Garnett's introduction.

It seems like a reasonable assumption to me. Go for it.

+1.

As John Silas Reed wrote about the Russian revolution, and was very much a social activist, seems likely that he would author such an introduction. (specially when you read the last few paragraphs of that intro)

BTW, I saw a link for a version in html if it might be useful.
Eldritch Press --- seems to have a few interesting texts. Poor web site though.

Thanks to you both. I think I'll use something like 'probably translated by...'

After I did the above post last night I thought of emailing the University of Adelaide ebook library to see if they can help, and I'll also try the publisher.
