H.G. Wells

Interesting discovery for me. In fall 1941, John Dos Passos met fellow writer H.G. Wells in London at the PEN Club congress. Dos Passos then visited with Wells as his home at the edge of Regents Park. He very much enjoyed Wells’ company, describing him as a “spruce figure…his sharp-clipped white mustache and the liquid alertness of glaze-blue eyes.” Surely, there is a photo somewhere of them at the PEN Club conference.
