July 4, 2011 Print Version Source: Telegraph AE Hotchner said he believed the FBIs monitoring of the Nobel Prize-winning author, over suspicions of his links to Cuba, substantially contributed to his anguish and his suicide 50 years ago. Hotchner wrote in The New York Times that he had regretfully misjudged his friends fears of federal investigators, which were dismissed as paranoid delusions for years after his death. In 1983 the FBI released a 127-page file it had kept on Hemingway since the 1940s, confirming he was watched by agents working for J. Edgar Hoover, who took a personal interest in his case. Hotchner described being met off a train by Hemingway in Ketchum, Idaho, in November 1960, for a pheasant shoot with their friend Duke MacMullen. Hemingway, struggling to complete his last work, complained the feds had tailed us all the way and that agents were poring over his accounts in a local bank that they passed on their journey. Its the worst hell, Hemingway said. The goddamnedest hell. Theyve bugged everything. Thats why were using Dukes car. Mines bugged. Everythings bugged. Cant use the phone. Mail intercepted. Later that month he was committed for psychiatric care at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, where he received electric shock treatment. He attempted suicide several times before being released.

A few days after returning home to Ketchum, he shot himself in the head with his favourite shotgun aged 61. In the years since, I have tried to reconcile Ernests fear of the FBI, which I regretfully misjudged, with the reality of the FBI file, wrote Hotchner, the author of Papa Hemingway. I now believe he truly sensed the surveillance, and that it substantially contributed to his anguish and his suicide, he said.

With what I have learned of so many suspicious suicides of the past few years, I look back in history with a new set of eyes. Suicide, has been going on from day one.

I read years ago that the gun Ernest Hemingway used was the same gun is father used to commit suicide with.
