William F. Carne was born in Alexandria in August 1832. He was the Alexandria correspondent for the Washington Evening Star from August 1853 to September 1856, when he went to another regional paper. Later in life, he would become known as a local historian of Alexandria. He was also involved in the Alexandria Library Company, but less so during the period of the diary.
