H. Wickham "Stickum" Steed full name Henry Wickham Steed (October 10, 1871 - January 13, 1956) was a British journalist and historian. He was one of the first English speakers to sound the warning bells about the new German Chancellor Adolf Hitler. He was born in Long Melford, England.
Appointed by Joseph Pulitzer as Paris correspondent for the New York World, he later joined The Times as a foreign correspondent and was editor from 1919 until his resignation in 1922. The following year he became editor of Review of Reviews (1923-30), the journal that had been established by William Stead in 1890.
As a foreign correspondent, Steed lived in Vienna before the war, during which time he acquired a deep contempt for Austria-Hungary.
