How Hunter S. Thompson Got His Nickname

It wasn’t a moniker picked up by a reporter, but rather one given to him by his friends in high school. According to Page Six, Thompson got his nickname when he was 15 years old and was a member of Louisville’s Cherokee Club. He was sitting with his friends when someone called him Ace. The nickname stuck and became even more prevalent during his time at Woodrow Wilson High School in Washington D.C., according to GQ. His teachers referred to him as Hack, which is what everyone else called him to, but they didn’t give it quite so much flare as he did himself.


How Hunter S. Thompson Started Writing

To say Hunter S. Thompson wrote from his own experience is kind of misleading, though not entirely untrue. He was a very personal writer who threw himself wholeheartedly into whatever topic he happened to be covered in any given moment—and that often meant inventing details for dramatic effect. When it came time to write his first book Hell’s Angels: The Strange and Terrible Saga of Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs, however, Thompson had no experience to draw on. While living with and riding with motorcycle gangs he learned how they lived and told stories based on those experiences.


A Brief Timeline of Thompson’s Life

From his early fame as a poet and burgeoning success as a novelist, Thompson rose to prominence as both a journalist and an author with books such as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. He used multiple pen names throughout his career, including Raoul Duke for his writing about sports and gambling. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is considered one of Thompson’s most acclaimed works. He also struggled with drug addiction; he was arrested numerous times on drug-related charges. In 2005, Hunter S. Thompson committed suicide in his Colorado home at age 67. His ashes were buried privately on Owl Farmland near Woody Creek, Colorado, next to his good friend Ralph Steadman’s gravesite.


What Made Thompson So Compelling?

One reason why Thompson is so compelling is that he sacrificed his health to put out a first-class magazine that was unparalleled in terms of its sheer quality and readability. There have been many competing accounts on what exactly happened, but it is apparent that Thompson took amphetamines—also known as speed—to keep him awake long enough to finish all of his assignments. The drug didn’t just give him energy, though; it made him feel euphoric and powerful, especially when combined with alcohol.
