Reading Hemingway’s Fishing Logs

October 11, 2014 By: Erin Block

Along with a team of US researchers, John and Patrick Hemingway, grandsons of author Ernest Hemingway, are on a tour of Cuba to encourage closer ties between the two countries. They had hoped to gain access to Hemingway’s detailed  fishing logs, which scientists see as a potentially valuable source of knowledge about the Cojimar area’s predatory game fish populations. And while Cuba’s National Cultural Heritage Council refused access to the closely guarded writings, they stated they “will work to let researchers see them eventually.”
