Kevin Wicks founded's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.

    I’m sorry but all the posts from Laurence Overmyer down to Bayan Escort sound like they’ve been written by the same person and not in response to this article!!

  • Paul WIlson

    You can add Patrick Macnee, the quintessential bowler-and-brolly carrying Englishman in THE AVENGERS to this list. Born in London in 1922; became an American citizen in 1959.
