George Randolph Chester
George Randolph Chester (January 27, 1869 – February 26, 1924) was an American writer. He was the author of such popular works such as Get-Rich-Quick Wallingford and "Five Thousand an Hour: How Johnny Gamble won the heiress" that were made into silent films within his lifetime. His success in selling stories to The Saturday Evening Post and leaving his position with the Cincinnati Enquirer and moving to New York City to write fiction was the impetus for James Bearsley Hendryx to buy a typewriter and try his hand at writing fiction.
