Letters to the Editor

When publishing entrepreneur Arnold Gingrich started his fashion magazine for men, he decided he needed “masculine” content to draw in readers. He convinced Ernest Hemingway to write for him, and the pair began exchanging letters. Their archived correspondence reveals business dealings and a friendship, though neither would last.

10 Writing Aunt Lulu

During World War II, a farmer’s wife from Lake Orion, Michigan, began corresponding with service men and women. She invited them to call her “Aunt Lulu,” and by the time the war ended, she had more than 1,300 letters. Five scrapbooks at the Bentley preserve Lulu Middleton’s efforts to give soldiers at war a kind word from home.

18 Out of the Shadows

Alice Chipman Dewey was an eager partner in social and educational reform alongside her husband, John Dewey. Of John, much is known. However, even though Alice guided and informed their shared work, many of her contributions have been ignored or lost. Alice’s spotlight as a pioneer and leader is long overdue.
