Vereen Bell

Vereen Bell

Vereen Bell (5 October 1911 - 25 October 1944) was an American novelist. Born in Cairo, Georgia, he graduated from Davidson College in North Carolina in 1932. Bell wrote the novel "Swamp Water", which was published in 1940 and adapted as a film of the same title in 1941.

During World War II Bell was a naval officer assigned to Composite Squadron VC-10 aboard the USS Gambier Bay (CVE-73); he was killed during the Battle of Leyte Gulf.

Davidson College today awards the Vereen Bell Award for creative writing in his honor.
