March 7, 1920: Gerald Brandon filed about 15 stories for The Times from late 1919 to early 1920. This incident was the third time he had been expelled from Mexico under various regimes, The Times said. Unfortunately, there’s no further information in The Times about him, so it’s unclear what became of this adventurous foreign correspondent.

Brandon gives an account of being jailed in Mexico and tells of being lectured by the police chief before being taken to the U.S. Once Brandon returned, he wrote a series for The Times criticizing Mexico’s problems.
