George Warrington Steevens, usually credited as G. W. Steevens, (1869-1900), was a British journalist and writer. He was elected a fellow of Pembroke College, Oxford, in 1893 and also spent some time at Cambridge where he edited a weekly periodical. As a journalist, he distinguished himself by his clearness of vision and vivid style, and was connected successively with the National Observer, the Pall Mall Gazette, and, from 1896, the Daily Mail. He was the most famous war correspondent of his time. He utilised the articles which appeared in these and other publications in various books, such as Monologues of the Dead (1895), The Land of the Dollar (America) (1897), With the Conquering Turk (1897), With Kitchener to Khartum, chronicling his attachment to British forces during the Mahdist War in the Sudan, The Tragedy of Dreyfus and his posthumous From Capetown to Ladysmith (1900). He was appointed by the Daily Mail as war correspondent to South Africa during the Second Boer War in 1899, where he died of enteric fever during the siege at Ladysmith.
