About Leicester Clarence Hemingway

Leicester C. Hemingway, was an American writer. He was the younger brother of writer Ernest Hemingway, and authored six books, including a first novel entitled The Sound of the Trumpet (1953), which was based on Leicester's experiences in France and Germany during World War II. In 1961, Leicester published My Brother, Ernest Hemingway, a biography of his brother. The work was well received, and brought Leicester both recognition as a writer in his own right and significant financial rewards. With the capital from the work, Hemingway created the micronation of New Atlantis on a raft in the Caribbean, intended to serve as a marine research headquarters. The project was cut short when New Atlantis was destroyed in a hurricane after only a few years.

Leicester Hemingway committed suicide in 1982 after several years of suffering from Type II diabetes, which necessitated numerous operations.
