Biography of Robert J. Casey

Journalist, foreign correspondent, and author based in Chicago from the 1920s through the 1960s.

Robert Joseph Casey was born March 14, 1890, in Beresford, South Dakota, and attended St. Mary's College in St. Mary's, Kansas from 1907 to 1911. Casey enlisted in the Army in 1918 and served at Verdun and Meuse-Argonne as an artilleryman. He earned three citations for bravery in combat before his discharge as a captain in 1919. In 1927, Casey wrote (anonymously) The Cannoneers Have Hairy Ears; A Diary of the Front Lines about his wartime experiences, and this book was acclaimed for its gritty and realistic depictions of an American solider in World War I.

In 1920 Casey joined the Chicago Daily News, where he worked as a columnist and foreign correspondent for twenty-seven years. In Chicago, Casey wrote features, chronicled the gang wars of the era, and compiled "slice of life" stories which were published in the paper under column titles "Vest Pocket Anthology," "Such Interesting People," and "More Interesting People." During the 1920s and 1930s, Casey also traveled through Indochina, Cuba, Pitcairn Islands and Easter Island, and many other sites, and wrote about his adventures in newspaper columns and books. In 1940, Casey covered the blitz in London and its aftermath; he was also in Hawaii and the Pacific right after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December, 1941.

After his coverage of World War II in France, Africa, and the Pacific, Casey came back to Chicago to write. He had been married to Marie Driscoll, who died in 1945; in 1946 Casey married Hazel MacDonald, a reporter and fellow Chicago-based foreign correspondent he first met in 1933. After Casey's retirement from the Daily News in 1947, he continued to write books and freelance newspaper articles. In 1955 he was named Press Veteran of the Year by the Chicago Press Veterans Association. After being under treatment for several years for a heart condition and high blood pressure, Casey died of a stroke on Dec. 5, 1962 at St. Francis Hospital, Evanston, at the age of 72.

Scope and Content of the Collection

Works, correspondence, and personal material of Robert J. Casey.

The Works series is by far the largest series in the collection; the bulk of Casey's papers consist of typescript and print versions of Casey's literary output. The works cover most of Casey's life, from his early aspirations as a writer in his college years to his last newspaper articles. Casey's travels in Cambodia and other part of Asia, his adventures on Pitcairn Island and Easter Island, his wartime stories, Chicago local stories, travelogues, and mystery novels are all represented. The remainder of the collection consists of some biographical material, letters, some photographs, scrapbooks, and artifact material.

Narrative descriptions of the subject matter, types of material, and arrangement of each series are available through the Organization section of the finding aid.
