HISTORICAL SKETCH 

By Hobart C. Chatfield-Taylor 

During the fateful year when the world began to war, Mr. 
John M. Stahl, our treasurer, conceived the venturesome idea 
of gathering the writers of the state of Illinois together 
under the sponsorship of the Writers' Guild, his purpose 
having been to form them into a state society of authors. 

None but a bold man would have sought to weld such 
individualistic — dare I say egotistic? — creatures as authors 
into a society of any sort; yet Mr. Stahl plied his typewriter 
so assiduously during the summer of the year 1914 that a 
goodly proportion of the gifted of the gods were induced to 
attend a dinner given for them at the Auditorium Hotel on 
the evening of November 28th by the Writers' Guild — or 
rather by Mr. Stahl, its insistent President, my suspicion be- 
ing that in his hands the Guild was as pliant as we authors. 

To silence Mr. Stahl and his typewriter we came, albeit 
dubiously, only to find that he and Douglas Malloch, his 
valiant coadjutor, had distributed the limelight so tactfully 
that we became contented components of a harmonious 
whole. Yet harmonious is not the mot juste for the occas- 
ion, I fear, Hamlin Garland having been there in forensic 
majesty. Bent upon broadening Mr. Stahl's parochial idea, 
this doughty champion of the Middle West orated unabat- 
ingly until the domain of the proposed society had been so 
extended as to include within it all that vast region of the 
land lying north of the Ohio River and between the Alle- 
ghanies and the Rockies. 

Being temperamentally adverse to the term "Middle 
West," I mildly suggested the word "Midland" between 
flights of Mr. Garland's eloquence, and for my unwonted in- 
terference was elected to bear upon my shoulders the weight 
of the new Society's chairmanship. Indeed, vdthout any of 

4 



us knowing precisely how it happened, we authors of the 
Commonwealth of Illinois, whom Mr. Stahl's persistence 
had brought together and Mr. Malloch's tact had placated, 
became so fired by Mr. Garland's enthusiasm that we re- 
solved ourselves into a Society of Midland Authors, pledged 
to recruit our ranks to full war strength from those of our 
fellow craftsmen in eleven other states of the Union. 

After thus upsetting Mr. Stahl's good intention, Mr. Gar- 
land fled precipitously to effete Manhattan, where in all but 
sentiment he has ceased to be a Midland Author. Howso- 
ever dire his action may have seemed to Mr. Stahl, it has 
been justified by the success attained by the Society, — a suc- 
cess due, I believe, to the loyalty and wisdom of its direc- 
tors. Having resided in remote places during the greater 
portion of my incumbency of the Presidential ofifice, I can- 
not take credit to myself for the work of recruiting and or- 
ganizing the Society. I know, nevertheless, how deeply the 
Society is beholden to: 

Mary Aldis Clara E. Laughlin 

Edwin Balmer Vachel Lindsay 

Lilian Bell Douglas Malloch 

Clara Louise Burnham Harriet Monroe 

George Fitch Randall Parrish 

Alice French Ella W. Peattie 

Hamlin Garland John M. Stahl 

Alice Gerstenberg Maude Radford Warren 

Emerson Hough Edith Wyatt 

As the Society's first President and now its Historian, I 
take pleasure in inscribing their names in alphabetical order 
upon this, its Golden Book, since to them more than to all 
others its success is due, they having been its most willing 
and efficient workers. 

Though the achievements of the Society are gratifying, I 
suspect that both Mr. Stahl and Mr. Garland aimed to make 



of it a more austere organization than it has become. But 
authors are "onery critters" and therefore difificult to drive. 
Moreover, to expect them to prepare masterful creations 
merely to read to each other, when millions of readers are 
crying for their wares and affluent publishers with cheque 
books lying open before them wax impatient at their desks, 
is to demand too much of human nature. Indeed, those wise 
men and women whose names I have recorded saw both the 
futility and absurdity of boring the members of the Society 
of Midland Authors with the reading of sempiternal papers 
on which no royalties are paid. Morever, being authors 
themselves, they knew that even authors, if they can be 
caught unawares and induced to unbend, like to play and 
make good cheer, not only at Christmas ibut at other seemly 
times; hence "a closer association among writers of the 
Middle West" was declared to be the Society's prime object. 

It is true that "the stimulation of creative literary effort" 
is a secondary tenet of its creed; yet how may authors be 
inspired better than by meeting each other and swapping 
ideas? 

As Historian of the Society, I am gratified to find that 
there is a little of an uplifting nature to record and much 
that is joyful and humanizing. We Midlanders do assemble 
once a year, it is true, to listen to pajpers read by fellow 
members; but even these solemn occasions have proved far 
from depressing; for instead of being bored by "high-brow" 
sapience we have been diverted by the pleasing wit of 
Alice French, Meredith Nicholson, Randall Parrish, George 
Ade, Emerson Hough, Zona Gale, and Margaret Hill Mc- 
Carter 

Even at the last annual meeting, when the death of our 
beloved Honorary President made personal reminiscenes of 
him the order of the day, we did not wear long faces or 
pass stilted resolutions. On the contrary, we just sat to- 
gether in a friendly group while Clara EaughHn, Edith 

6 



Wyatt, and Harriet Monroe told us human stories of James 
Whitcomb Riley's lovableness and quaintness. 

But the annual meeting is the only formal conclave of the 
year, and even that is followed by sufficient cheer and wel- 
come to make what Shakespeare calls a "merry feast." 

Decked in paper motley, we then devour the roast beef 
of old England and quaff October ale; or, in more homely 
guise, eat pork and beans and pumpkin pie until the hard 
cider which has washed them down begins to tingle in our 
toes. Then we must needs dance a reel to the tune of ''Old 
Dan Tucker," till the perspiring fiddler will bow no more. 

No, there is but little wisdom and false philosophy in the 
Society of Midland Authors, and much that is human and 
edifying, even our annual meetings being far from staid 
events. In the winter time, however, we gather at such Bo- 
hemian places as Mme. Galli's, the Bismarck Garden, or De 
Jonghe's French restaurant; while in summer we hie either 
to Lake Forest for a sylvan outing or to the Chicago lawn of 
our charming Secretary, whenever wandering Thespians 
raise their trestles there. 

Indeed, if the Society of Midland Authors has a just 
reason for being, it lies, I repeat, in its avowed purpose of 
bringing the writers of the Middle West together in closer 
association. Though a society of authors, it is nevertheless 
free from cant and prejudice, the creation of both friend- 
ship and goodfellowship among the men and women of the 
Middle West who write for a living being the object for 
which it was founded. 'Because of this it differs from other 
societies of its kind and plays, I fondly believe, a useful 
as well as pleasing part in the life of this workaday por- 
tion of the land.

AUTHORS

At a meeting of the Officers and Directors of the Society 
of Midland Authors, held September 27, 1917, the following 
amendment to the Constitution, VIII., Qualifications, para- 
graph 1, was proposed: 

The 'Board of Directors shall constitute the Committee on

intended election. Vote on such membership may be taken 
at any regular meeting of the Board of Directors. Each 
Director shall be required to attend such meeting or vote by

affirmative vote. 

Any writer, resident within the twelve states enumerated 
above, who is the author of a book of poetry, fiction, history, 
biography, travel, or criticism, published in the regular 
course of trade, or who is the author of a play produced 
by professional players on a public stage, shall be eligible 
to membership. Writers of books privately printed, or of 
books on legal, medical, political, theological, scientific, or 
technical subjects, or of pamphlets, cannot be considered 
qualified thereby for membership. 

But the membership committee by unanimous vote may 
elect to membership any candidate who, in its judgment, has 
achieved distinction as a contributor to magazines.

Council; or upon request in writing of twenty-five members.
