Hans Ruesch -2

Hans Ruesch, a successful Swiss racecar driver in the years before World War II who later became a writer of well-received novels of adventure, two of which became Hollywood films, died on Monday at his home in Lugano, Switzerland. He was 94.

The cause was cancer, his daughter, Vivian Ruesch Mellon, said.
...
In later years, Mr. Ruesch was known as an outspoken advocate against vivisection and other forms of animal testing. His nonfiction book "Slaughter of the Innocent" (Civitas Publications, 1983), first published in Europe in the 1970s, is credited with helping galvanize the animal-rights movement here and abroad.
