Ernest Hemingway’s Son Jailed

July 19, 1985

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) _ Dr. Gregory Hemingway, son of Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway, remained in Missoula County jail Friday after he kicked out the glass in a restaurant door after he was refused service.

Hemingway, 53, was sentenced to six months in jail after pleading guilty to misdemeanor criminal mischief. The incident occurred last weekend. Hemingway said he meant to kick the door, but didn’t mean to break it.

Gregory Hemingway is the son of the late author and his second wife, Pauline. In 1976, his biography of his Nobel Prize-winning father, called ″Papa,″ received high praise.

Hemingway has lived in Montana since the mid-1970s with much of that time spent practicing medicine in the small communities of Fort Benton and Jordan. He said he moved to Missoula about a year ago and has been working on several other books.
