Jacques Futrelle

Jacques Futrelle (1875-1912) was an American journalist and mystery author best known for creating the remarkable detective Augustus S. F. X. Van Dusen. He published the first story starring Van Dusen, whose sleuthing brilliance earned him the nickname "The Thinking Machine," in 1905, and went on to publish many more stories in the series before his life was cut short in the sinking of the RMS Titanic.
