VULCAN - SPORTS WRITER

Postby familyhistorynut » Tue Jan 29, 2008 2:00 am

Hi
Can anyone tell me about a sports writer in Sheffield, who's pen name was 'Vulcan'. I believe he was a brother of my Grandfather. I don't know if he was attached to Sheffield Football Club or if he was attached to a local newspaper. His name was John Charles Leith and he was born in 1870 and died in 1911.

Any information will be more than I have at the moment and very welcome.

Regards
Marilyn

All I've found out is what I got when I googled his name, but I'm sure you already have all this information.

Thanks Broadsword. Yes, Alan Brown got that information from me originally.

What I really want to know is about his career as a Sports Writer. I have tried the Sheffield football websites and some of the newspapers but haven't found anything yet.

Will keep searching, but any help would be appreciated.

Regards
