    • US Ambassadorship to Pancho Villa

      Kenneth Sackett, Grandson of William, states on 2/12/2006 that his grandfather was a part of then United States Ambassadorship to Pancho Villa. Although, I have no physical proof of this claim, there are some interesting points to consider:

      1) William was at the Port Consulate in Santiago de Cuba during the Spanish American War. Since his occupation in the 1920 El Paso, Texas census was "Stenographer", it could be assumed that he was on the staff and had some knowledge of Spanish.
      2) Kenneth states that his father, Charles Edwin was actually born in Mexico in 1911, but was given the birth date of August 13, 1913 because that is the day he entered the United States. The 1920 census supports this statement by the immigration year written as 1913.
      3) William's first 2 sons, William and Charles were born between 1907 & 1911 in Mexico. His wife, Carmen was born in Mexico. Again, his knowledge of Spanish is assumed.
      4) The Mexican Revolution, sometimes called the Mexican Revolution of 1910, was a violent social and cultural movement, colored by socialist, nationalist, and anarchist tendencies, that began with the popular rejection of dictator Porfirio Díaz Mori in 1910 and continued even after the promulgation of a new constitution seven years later.
      5) Henry Lane Wilson (1859-1932) born in Columbus, New Mexico, was involved with Álvaro Obre gón, Venustiano Carranza, Pancho Villa, and Gustavo A. Madero in the Mexican Revolution. He was captured at the Battle of Celaya. As a US ambassador, he arranged meetings between Felix Diaz and General Bernardo Reyes in order to oust President Francisco I. Madero. He was United States Ambassador under the presidencies of Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909) and William Howard Taft (1909-1913). William could have been on his staff.
      6) Geographic proximity of El Paso to Chihuahua.

    • W. H. Sackett Writes On Southwestern Places

      William Hudson Sackett, member of the Night Writers' Club, finds inspiration for his work in the Southwest and Mexico.

      Recently he sold to an eastern church magazine a short story entitled "Prophesy of Princess Papanytain" -- An Aztec legend.

      He has been at work on a history of the Aztec civilization for 30 years and at present he is writing a manuscript called "Lost Trails of Old Mexico."

      A short time ago the manuscript of his book, "Xochitl," was reviewed at the El Paso Women's Club by Miss Lucia Hutchins before it was forwarded to the publishers.

      Mr. Sackett is a member of the Night Writers' Club and the Manuscript Club, and has served a term as president of the latter group.

      Mr. Sackett has a background of newspaper men and writers. His father, Col. F. W. Sackett, founded the Weyauwega Chronicle in 1876, and later the Phillips (Wisconsin) Times, where Mr. Sackett learned the printing and newspaper game while attending public schools, going through the various phases of a county seat newspaper for the "printer's devin" to editor.

      Later he became private secretary tohis uncle, Congressman Geo. D. Meiklejohn, who became assistant secretary and then secretary of war in President McKinley's cabinet.

      While in Washington, D. C. he studied law at Columbian Law School and also studied at the Berlitz School of Romance Languages. He was admitted to the practice of law by the district court of Coffee County, Tenn. He served in the military information division of the War Department and under General Leonard Wood in Cuba where he spent nearly three years during the first occupation of the Island by American troops, and the Spanish American War.

      During his stay in Washingtion and also in Cuba, he wrote feature articles for several leading papers.

      Upon his return from Cuba, Mr. Sackett went to Old Mexico, where he continued writing for the papers and magazines. At one time whild in Mexico he was consular clerk, and then American consul at Guanajuato, Mexico.

      He came out of Mexico during the World War and entered the Quartermaster Corps, Sandstorm Division, Camp Cody, N. M.

      While in Washington Mr. Sackett became deeply interested in the study of the history of ancient Americans, particularly the history of the ancient Aztecs,
      and in Mexico made intensive study of the Aztecs. today he is one of the recognized authorities on Aztec history and folklore.
