Short biography
George Post Wheeler (August 6, 1869 – December 23, 1956) was an American journalist, writer and career diplomat.   He wrote numerous pieces of humor and poetry, and published collections of Russian, Albanian, and Hawaiian folk-lore.   His projected ten-volume book of Japanese rakugo tales, entitled Hō-Dan-Zō (Treasure-Tale Storehouse) was not published owing to the outbreak of World War II, but the manuscript is in the New York Public Library.

With his wife, Hallie, also a writer, he published Dome of Many-Coloured Glass in 1952 about their experiences serving in the United States Foreign Service.  [from Post Wheeler in Wikipedia
