Cornelius Vanderbilt Jr.

Author Code: ACVJ

Born: Apr. 30, 1898 - Staten Island, New York, USA

Died: Jul. 7 1974 - Reno, Nevada, USA

From the wealthy Vanderbilt family, Cornelius was educated at Harstrom's Tutoring School and St. Paul's School. His further education was interrupted by America's entry into World War I in 1917. He enlisted in the Army in July, 1917 and was posted to Spartanburg, South Carolina. He went overseas to France in May 1918 and, shortly thereafter became General Haig's driver. He returned to America in 1919 and was promoted to corporal. Afterwards, he was promoted to second lieutenant in the Officers Reserve Corps. At odds with his family, Vanderbilt became a journalist. In the early 1920s he launched several newspapers and tabloids, but the venture only lasted a couple of years, and he became an assistant managing editor of the New York Daily Mirror. In 1929, he got into the film industry with Reno, about divorce in Reno, Nevada, where he was then living. He made an anti-Nazi documentary in 1934, predicting that Germany, led by Hitler, would pose a threat to world peace. In 1935, he published his autobiography, Farewell to Fifth Avenue. He was commissioned in the U.S. Army Reserve in 1938, and by 1941 was on active duty as a major in the Intelligence Corps. He was discharged in 1943 due to ill health. In 1953, he was divorced from his fifth (!) wife; he was eventually married seven times. He continued to write until his late sixties. His works include Lines From the Front Line (1918), The Gas Attack (1919), Personal Experiences of a Cub Reporter (1922), Park Avenue (1928), Palm Beach (1929), A Woman of Washington (1934), Filthy Rich (1939) and The Living Past of America (1955).
