Biography

Born Joseph Brand Whitlock in Urbana, Ohio, son of the Rev. Elias and Mollie Lavinia (Brand) Whitlock, he was educated in the public schools and by private tutors. Rather than attend college, Whitlock began his career as a reporter for several papers in Toledo, Ohio, including the The Toledo Blade. In 1891, he moved to Chicago to work for The Chicago Herald. He covered baseball including the likes of longtime Chicago captain-manager Cap Anson, whom he sometimes referred to in print as "Grampa." The recollection appears in Whitlock's 1914 book Forty Years of It and contemporaneous Herald coverage from the early 1890s can be found in which the term appears, in relation to Anson. Newspapers hardly had bylines as of the 1890s, and direct confirmation of Whitlock's baseball writing career may be elusive. He covered the 1892 Republican National Convention and the 1892 Illinois legislative session. Whitlock joined the Whitechapel Club.
