5/7/1865 AEW Mason born

May 7, 1865.  A.E.W. Mason was born on this date in London. His character Inspector Hanaud, a French cop, was supposedly an influence on Agatha Christie's creation of Hercule Poirot.  His most famous book, a non-mystery was The Four Feathers, and like a lot of his other books it has been filmed repeatedly.
