Sinclair Lewis took some wonderful digs at him in his novel Babbitt. I've been rereading it lately, and the type is crystal clear, in this description (I looked for a bit from the dinner party chapter where he is introduced. His name is "Cholmondeley," pronounced "Chumley" and through the novel he's referred to as "Chum Frink."

I picked this up at Bartleby, it's in the public domain (and it is a wonderful novel).


This is a chunk of paragraph 73.
