Lucius Morris Beebe was an American author, gourmand, photographer, railroad historian, journalist, and syndicated columnist. Charles Clegg was an American author, photographer, and railroad historian. Clegg is primarily remembered as the lifelong companion of Beebe, and was a co-author of many of Beebe's best-known books. They met in 1940, while both were houseguests at the Washington, D.C. home of Evalyn Walsh McLean. The two soon developed a personal and professional relationship that continued for the rest of Beebe's life. By the standards of the era, the homosexual relationship Beebe and Clegg shared was relatively open and well known. Previously, Beebe had been involved with society photographer Jerome Zerbe. In 1950, they moved to Virginia City, Nevada, where they purchased and restored the Piper family home and later purchased the dormant Territorial Enterprise newspaper. Beebe died in 1966 at the age of 63 of a sudden heart attack. Clegg committed suicide in 1979, on the day that he reached the precise age at which Beebe had died.
Together from 1940 to 1966: 26 years.
Charles M. Clegg (June 29, 1916 – August 25, 1979)
