ONLINE RESOURCES

There is actually very little online devoted in any particular way to foreign correspondents. Even the press clubs don't update their Web sites very often. And there's certainly a limited amount dealing with the history of foreign correspondents. Often the sites deal tagentially with some major figures, like Russell or Davis, known for their exploits in literary of historical circles. Any contributions for other online resources would be much appreciated.

  • Foreign Correspondent: This site is putatively for foreign correspondents. And while it has a nice array of links to information on embassies, currencies, experts, databases, treaties and whatnot, it seems little used. At least the mailing list I belong to seems neglected. But a very good set of online resources in any case.

  • Richard Harding Davis:This site contains some of his writings, including memoirs of his life as a correspondent. However, the site is actually geared more toward writers, as Davis was as known for his romantic novels and short stories as he was for his work as a war correspondent.
