Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Julian Russell Sturgis was an American-born novelist, poet, librettist and lyricist who lived and worked in Britain nearly all of his life. He played football as an amateur for the Wanderers F.C. winning the English FA Cup in 1873, and was thus the first American to play in a winning FA Cup Final team. Sturgis was born in Boston, Massachusetts but moved to England when only seven months old when his father, Russell Sturgis, a successful Boston and Far East merchant, joined Baring Brothers in London. Sturgis's mother was Julia Boit, his father's third wife. He was a pupil at Eton College, where he played an active role in the mixed Wall and Field XIs in 1867, being Keeper of the Field in 1867, and editing the Eton College Journal.show more
