Ernest Hemingway's home is on Warwick Boulevard in Kansas City, Missouri. It was here the young Hemingway, fresh out of high school, moved in 1917, taking a job as a cub reporter for the Kansas City Star. His Uncle Tyler lived here and was instrumental in helping him get the job. He left the following May when he signed up as an ambulance driver for the Red Cross, having failed his enlistment due to poor vision. Although his time here was short his work on the paper was to have a large impact on his future, helping to give him life lessons in writing that he would use in the career lying just ahead of him.
