  • Behind The Sun : The Man Who Investigated Thomas Cutbush

    Might be worthwhile for someone to pursue the identity of the unnamed man.

    Nina gave it a shot but couldn't be definite as to who the man was...meant to mention that before. She won't post anything unless that condition is established.

      His name was Robert Batho, evidently related to a former Lord Mayor of London. The article below is from the Buffalo Evening News, 8 October 1920. The writer David Bullock had previously identified the journalists who had investigated Cutbush as Louis Tracy and Kennedy Jones, but gave no source for this suggestion. RP

          It's a little strange that ma Cutbush let Batho spend 'a night or two' (or 13 nights!) in Cutbush's room. But, like they say, journalists will befriend, if only to ultimately betray...

            In 1886 there was an unidentified writer who wrote a parody of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" using the name "Robert Bathos Stavingson," and I am wondering if this was Robert Batho, using a humorous play on his own name, or was it just a coincidence? (Batho is rather an unfortunate name for a writer! Did his journalism often descend into bathos?)
