Sydney Brooks (1872–1937) was a British author and critic.[1][2] Brooks was a frequent contributor to the Saturday Review and was in England writing reviews in late 1895 through January 1896, when he left to visit Chicago.[3] In America his critical reviews and writings were sold to publications such as Harper's Magazine.[4]

Brooks was a notable passenger who was aboard the SS Tuscania,[5] a luxury liner of the Cunard subsidiary Anchor Line when it was torpedoed in 1918 by the German U-boat UB-77 while carrying American troops to Europe and sank with a loss of 210 lives.[6]
