Bohun Lynch (1884-1928)

Bohun Lynch was born in London on 21 May 1884 of Irish parentage. He was educated at Haileybury School and University College, Oxford; during his time at the latter, he boxed as a middleweight and captained the boxing team in his last year. In 1908, he produced
Oxford Quips: by a Crank, which presaged his parallel careers as a writer and caricaturist-illustrator. When he gave up a medical career on health grounds, he turned to journalism, becoming Boxing Correspondent for Field & Sport and producing four books on boxing, beginning with The Complete Amateur Boxer in 1913. However, he soon proved to be a writer of breadth.
