3/26/1904 J.F. Straker born
March 26, 1904. I can't tell you much about J.F. Straker because there isn't much about him on the web. Born on this date in Kent, UK. Served in the army during World War II. Taught math. And wrote some mystery novels with amazing titles, like Goodbye, Aunt Charlotte!, Sin and Johnny Inch, and A Pity It Wasn't George. His Hell is Empty (another great title) was filmed in 1967.
