Details of Street's early life are sketchy. He graduated from Wellington College in Berkshire and then studied at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich. He entered military service in 1903, but later resigned his commission in 1906. During World War I he served as an artillery officer and also as a propagandist for MI7. He was wounded three times, the last when he was serving as a Forward Observation Officer. He was subsequently awarded the Military Cross and rose to the rank of major. His final years in the military were served in Dublin during the uprisings. In the 1920s he began writing full-time under various pseudonyms. He was a prolific author and produced some 140 novels, a number of non-fiction works and some short stories. He is best remembered for his character Dr. Priestley the forensic scientist cum detective who appeared in scores of his novels and stories (using the pseudonym of John Rhode). Street was a founding member of the Detection Club and became good friends with fellow member John Dickson Carr. During the Second World War, Street served as a lieutenant in the Home Guard between 1940 and 1942. His many works include With The Guns (1916), The Administration of Ireland (1920), East of Prague (1924), The Paddington Mystery (1925), Peril at Cranbury Hall (1930), Murder at the Moorings (1932), Hendon's First Case (1935), Death at Low Tide (1938), Death at the Helm (1941), The Lake House (1946), Death in Wellington Road (1952), A Crime in Time (1955), Death Takes a Partner (1958) and The Vanishing Diary (1961).
