Eby, Cecil D. “Hemingway’s ‘The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber.’” Explicator 51, no. 1 (1992): 48.

Annotation

Suggests Wilson’s reference to Macomber as a “four-letter man” links him to high school and college athletes earning their varsity letters. For Wilson, true manhood is achieved through hunting dangerous game, not by collecting trophies on the gridiron.
