From Wikipedia: Stanton Hill (“Stan”) Delaplane (12 October 1907 – 18 April 1988) was a travel writer, credited with introducing Irish coffee to the United States. Called “last of the old irreplaceables” by fellow-columnist Herb Caen, he worked for the San Francisco Chronicle for 53 years, for which he was awarded a Pulitzer Prize.
In Kristin’s Words
My father named me with the idea in mind that it was a good byline. He said certain letters were strong and “K” was one of the strongest. My father wrote a daily column. Half his column was a travel column, so he was out of the country about six months a year. Half his column was about family life. To become even more the apple of his eye, I unconsciously learned early on how to be good copy. And How She Grew was published in 1961.
