ButlerIntoCCsHolleybiog.f37.pdf   Perspective on Marietta Holley

Cyril Clemens created three biographies of American humorists based on his work collecting information from living sources who knew the writers. He quoted extensively and reproduced varied documents: Josh Billings, B. P. Shillaber, and Petroleum V. Nasby were the three he published. He planned a fourth on Marietta Holley and was collecting documentation for it, but it was never completed. The link above connects to one of the proposed prefaces--by Ellis Parker Butler, author of Pigs is Pigs--that was to lead into his own text. It is a thoughtful contemporary placement of her in the culture of her era and helps explain why she dropped from sight so completely.

OK, been a bit busy with a grant proposal, but ready to work...should we start putting up primary works? I know there are also some youtube videos that we may be able to put here in this space.
