The Green-Room

ISSUE:  Winter 1933

in the United States Army, during the World War and since.

Of the two authors of “Can Taxes be Lowered?” Henry Pratt Fairchild is already well known to readers of the Quarterly. His most recent contribution, “Machines Don’t Buy Goods,” was published in the January, 1931, issue, and his most recent book, “Profits or Prosperity,” is reviewed in this number. His collaborator, William L. Nunn, is a native of Alabama and professor of economics in Dana College, Newark, New Jersey. Besides contributing to numerous publications, Professor Nunn is co-author of a recent book on “Economic Principles and Problems” (Long and Smith),

All the poets who contribute to this issue have published previously in the Quarterly. Amelie Rives TrouBetzkoy is a novelist and dramatist as well as a poet. Melville Cane is a New York lawyer who has published two volumes of poetry. BaBette DEutsCH of New York is the author of numerous volumes both of poetry and prose. David Cornel DeJong is a native of the Netherlands, living in Michigan. Frances Frost lives in the New England which her poems so frequently recreate. Her latest volume of verse is “These Acres.”

Marie KimBall, who lives in Philadelphia, is a journalist and a contributor to various magazines. She has for many years been a close student of the life of Thomas Jefferson, “The Epicure of the White House.”

The “Three Fables” which appear in this issue represent John Gould Fletcher’s first prose contribution to the Virginia Quarterly, in the pages of which Mr. Fletcher has always hitherto played his more accustomed role of poet. Mr. Fletcher is a native of Arkansas; was educated at Harvard; and has published numerous volumes of poetry, biography, and translation. For some years he has been living in London.

“If a Weasel Crosses Your Path Turn Back” is Mary Johnston’s first contribution to the Virginia Quarterly since that other memorable story, “Elephants Through the Country,” published in January, 1929. The latest of her many novels is “Hunting Shirt,”

There seemed to the editors to be no other writer in America whose opinion of the late D. II. Lawrence and of his significance was more worth laying before Virginia Quarterly readers than Sherwood Anderson. In his review, Mr. Anderson has not spoken in detail of recent Lawrence literature; but that literature has led him to have his say. Hersciiel Brickell is a Mississippian who served a long apprenticeship on Southern newspapers and has of late years been literary editor of the North American Re-view. BroadUs Mitchell, an economist of the Johns Hopkins faculty, has, since his most recent contributions to the Quarterly, published another book, “A Preface to Economics” (Holt). Roy Temple House, the editor of “Books Abroad,” published quarterly by the University of Oklahoma, and Hewette Elwell Joyce, professor of English at Dartmouth, appear for the first time in the Virginia Quarterly. Edward Wagenknecht, biographer and member of the University of Washington faculty, has often written for the Quarterly. Avery Craven, who with this issue makes his first appearance in the Virginia Quarterly, is a native of North Carolina. Mr. Craven is professor of American history in the University of Chicago, and has written chiefly in the field of Southern history. His latest volume, “Edmund Ruffin, Southerner,” was reviewed in a recent issue of the Quarterly. J. G. de RoulHac Hamilton, who has frequently contributed both articles and book reviews to the Virginia Quarterly, is the author of numerous volumes in the fields of Southern history and biography. Dexter Perkins is head of the department of history in the University of Rochester. During the World War he was attached to the history section of American Headquarters in France. E. P. Chase is an ex-Rhodes Scholar who is now professor of government at Lafayette College. Percy MacKaye, dramatist, poet, and critic, is a visiting professor this year at Sweet Briar College. Philip Wheelwright is professor of philosophy at Washington Square College, New York University, and is editor, with James Burnham, of The Symposium. He and Mr. Burnham recently published an “Introduction to Philosophical Analysis” (Holt). This is Mr. Wheelwright’s first contribution to the Virginia Quarterly.
