Profile

Editor of Wisden's Almanack for eight years, Charles Stewart Caine died on April 15, almost on the eve of the cricket season. Just as in the case of his two predecessors, Charles and Sydney Pardon, his passing left a gap in the ranks of sporting journalism almost impossible to fill. The Pardons were both more brilliant writers about cricket, but it is questionable if either of them was so universally loved by his fellow pressmen, not only in Fleet Street, but throughout the whole of the newspaper community, or was regarded with quite the same measure of esteem as Stewart Caine. It could be said without question that Caine was one of the last surviving sporting writers of the old school who thought out their opinions knowing that their views appearing in print might influence the mind of the public. He did not possess in such a marked and happy degree that wonderful faculty so lavishly bestowed upon Sydney Pardon of expressing in a few simple well-chosen words exactly his meaning and what he desired to convey to his readers. But, like his life-long colleague, he was a great stickler for correct grammatical writing, and in just a similar degree he had a great abhorrence of saying anything unkind about anyone of whom he had to write.
