According to Wikipedia: Born in Stony Point, Kentucky to John William Fox, Sr., and Minerva Worth Carr, Fox studied English at Harvard University. He graduated in 1883 before becoming a reporter in New York City. After working for both New York Times and the New York Sun, he published a successful serialization of his first novel, a Mountain Europa, in Century magazine in 1892. Two moderately successful short story collections followed, as well as his first conventional novel, the Kentuckians in 1898. Fox gained a following as a war correspondent, working for Harper's Weekly in Cuba during the Spanish-American War of 1898, where he served with the Rough Riders. Six years later he traveled to Asia to report on the Russo-Japanese War for Scribner's magazine.
