Donald Rexford Warren (1897 - 1973) was a very successful American design and construction engineer. He was a keen big game hunter who travelled to Africa many times with his wife. He kept diaries of his hunting trips which he loaned out to his friends. These became so popular, he had them printed in booklet form to give to friends to keep.
