Laura E. Richards (1850-1943), one of Gardiner, Maine's two Pulitzer Prize-winning authors, was born in Boston to eminent parents, Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe, founder of the Perkins School for the Blind; and Julia Ward Howe, social reformer and lyricist of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic." In 1871, she married Henry Richards (1848-1949), architect and industrialist, who returned to Gardiner, Maine in 1876 to manage the family paper mills.Here she wrote more than ninety works, mostly in the fields of children's literature and biography, at the family's celebrated residence, the Yellow House. Following the example of her parents, Mrs. Richards brought about social reforms and civic improvements in Gardiner including the introduction of safe drinking water, the public health nurse, the hospital, the Red Cross, a new high school, and numerous serice organizations, including the Gardiner Public Library. Her permanent contribution to world literature, in the opinion of the Oxford anthology series editors, was that of nonsense verses, including perennial favorites such as "Little John Bottlejohn," "Eletelephony," and "The Poor Unfortunate Hottentot" - verses which "seemed to bubble up from some spring of nonsense" in her own words. Her first publication was a book of nonsense verses, Sketches and Scraps (1881). Other collections included In My Nursery (1890), The Hurdy-Gurdy (1902), The Piccolo (1906), and her final anthology which was in print until a decade ago, Tirra Lirra (1932). As her own children grew up, she wrote short stories which interested them. These juvenile books appeared as the Margaret Monfort series, the Hildegarde series, and others. Captain January (1890), a best seller, was twice made into movies, and the second time starred Shirley Temple. Among her adult nonfiction       works were a two-volume biography of her father, Letters and Journal of Samuel Gridley Howe (1906-09); a joint biography of her parents, Two Noble Lives (1911); and, most importantly, the two-volume biography of her mother, Julia Ward Howe (1915), the first biography to be honored by the Pulitzer Prize. In her own estimation, her best works were two books of fables, The Golden Windows (1903) and The Silver Crown (1906). In her autobiography, Stepping Westward (1931) she recalls her other important work: the founding of the third boy's camp in the nation, Camp Merryweather, whose campers grew up to become national leaders and her literary mentorship of Gardiner's other Pulitzer Prize winner, Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869-1935)."

Her mother wrote "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and her Father established the Perkins Home for the Blind. When Laura E. Richards returned to Maine to raise her family and write her tales the conception of Children's Literature was at its Prime.  She contributed tens of Stories to St. Nicholas Magazine (my favorite magazine - with one posted each week) She wrote stories both entertaining and with historic links to please and educate children (both her own and those who were exposed to her books)  Begin with issues of St. Nicholas Magazine... then from there Discover Authors and Books which make today's Printings embarrassingly inadequate...It was a time when tales spurred a child's imagination and the Real World was kept at bay...Traditional tales spawned from every culture and Stories were passed through generations... The Conception of 'Fairy Tales' Traditional Stories passed through Generations has been supplanted by the latest Video Cartoon Character (fronting for a food company) The World of Child Wonder - Imagination - Fantasy have been Replaced by Instant Virtual  Violence On the Screen on Playing on an X-Box...Here find a pairing of Two Wonderful Laura E. Richards volumes...They derive from a Topsham Maine Estate - And Topsham is a Mere 25-30 miles from Gardner, Maine the Home of Laura E. Richards...

Fairy tales are play forms. "Play," Richter says, "is the first creative utterance of man." "It is the highest form in which the native activity of childhood expresses itself," says Miss Blow. Fairy tales offer to the little child an opportunity for the exercise of that self-active inner impulse which seeks expression in two kinds of play, the symbolic activity of free play and the concrete presentation of types.

Love Stories The Works of Mary Roberts Rinehart  (short stories) 1919 Duran ~ 

Life is a little work, a little sleep, a little love and it is all over.
Men deceive themselves; they look back on the children who were once themselves, and attempt to reconstruct them. But they can no longer think like the child . . .
You want the unvarnished and ungarnished truth, and I'm no hand for that. I'm a lawyer.

Mary Roberts Rinehart: was born in Pittsburgh. US novelist, playwright. She is best known for her mystery stories about Miss Pinkerton; originator of the phrase "The butler did it."  Apart from crime fiction she also wrote plays, comic stories, and love stories.
Mary Roberts Rinehart 1876-1958
Mary Ella Roberts was born on August 12,1876 near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her parents, Tom and Cornelia were still living in his mother's house with five other family members. Shortly after her sister OLIVE was born, they moved into a home of their own just down the  street. At fifteen, her career was foreshadowed when she had three short stories published in a local magazine for a dollar each. When she was  seventeen, she applied to nursing school and also met a young doctor by the name of Stanley Marshall Rinehart. They married when she was  nineteen. Mary found herself in the role of homemaker and a baby boy was soon on the way. Stanley Jr. was born in 1897. Her second son, Alan, arrived  in 1900 and her third son, Ted, was born in 1902. One of the side effects  of her pregnancies was constant nausea and she became very weak. Dr. Rinehart's half-brother, head of the hospital where she had been a  nurse decided to try to feed her broiled lobster, bits at a time. By miracle this stayed down. This experience with lobsters served her well when she came to Bar Harbor. She had always loved to write and had many short stories published in magazines but she was too busy to do any serious writings. However, when the Rineharts suffered a $12,000.00 loss in the stock market, Mary began writing more to help out financially. Mary had also tried at writing plays. A few were Broadway hits, like Seven DAYS and The Bat. There were a few others that just did not make it.World War I affected Mary's life tremendously. She consented to go to England as a war correspondent for the Saturday Evening Post in January of 1915. England was full of journalists and Mary wanted to get  to the front but her contacts told her there was nothing they could do to help. She then convinced the Belgian Red Cross to give her the proper credentials she needed and she promised to make the American people aware of the horrible conditions at the Belgian front. In 1921, her husband, Stanley Rinehart was appointed as a medical consultant to the Veteran's Bureau, so, they moved to Washington D.C.. They were soon caught up in the social and political scenes. Dr. Rinehart having grown frustrated with his government job and having arthritis which kept him from practicing surgery, resigned to open a  private practice specializing in tuberculosis. Mary's latest book at the time, Lost Ecstasy, a romance, was very successful. Hollywood paid her $15,000.00 for the movie rights. I Take This Woman, starring Gary Cooper and Carole Lombard was released in 1931. Stanley Jr. and Ted, along with a friend John Farrar, started their own publishing company in 1929 and Mary Roberts Rinehart was one of their  first authors. Dr. Rinehart handled the finances since Mary had a tendency to spend easily. She had invested in some ventures unwisely and the Crash of 1929 had hit them hard. Stanley blamed himself and Mary thought this aided in his declining health over the next few years. Dr. Rinehart died in 1932 with his family by his side.  Mary continued to live in their Washington home, alone except for a few servants. One of these was Reyes, the Filipino cook, who always  considered Dr. Rinehart his boss and was somewhat uneasy about taking orders from a woman-this attitude was to have bizarre  consequences later. In 1934 Mary suffered a heart attack. This left her heart weak and she was mostly unable to climb stairs and get around  her big house. She also missed the rest of the family. In 1935, she moved to an apartment in New York City.  The Rineharts had been spending their summers at a ranch out west or vacationing in Florida or renting beach houses on the northeast coast.  She was looking for a new summer place. She first came to Bar Harbor in 1935 and rented a cottage attached to one of the hotels. In 1936, she rented a house and in 1937 decided to buy Farview. This purchase gave Mary a new interest. Bar Harbor in 1937 was changing from the carefree life of earlier days. The beautiful sea, the mountains, and big cottages were still there but a lot of the  large homes were for sale. Her 1945 book, The Yellow Room was in a Bar Harbor-like setting. In the summer of 1938 Mary had a lot of construction and landscaping done. The house was built around an open courtyard with a reflecting fish pond. High on a hill, the view of the bay was breathtaking.  She moved into the house in 1939. She furnished it in light pastel colors and colorful upholstery. She had the architect put in a low-silled picture window in her bedroom so she could lie in bed and still see the water and islands. In 1938, Mary finished her fortieth book, The Wall, set in a disguised Bar Harbor filled with intrigue, murders and a love story. She considered this one of her best novels. The Saturday Evening Post agreed and paid her $65,000.00 for the serial rights. She had just finished it when, unfortunately, she had her most severe heart attack, putting her on oxygen for a time and nitroglycerine for the rest of her life. Mary, now in her mid-sixties was slowing down. She had just four  books, along with some short stories and magazine articles during the war years of 1940-46. Her summers in Bar Harbor were now filled with friends, dinner parties and social events as her health improved. Her son Alan was recovering  from pneumonia one year and the two of them would go sit in the sun at the top of Cadillac Mountain.The absence of her husband's handling of the finances were felt from time to time and at one point even put Farview up for sale. She could not let go of any of her servants. Farview was large and it was hard to find  maids. She then hired a butler in the summer of 1947 and her Filipino cook, Reyes, was not happy about it. He had been with the Rineharts for 25 years and he was always highly praised for his skills. One day, Reyes, told Mary he was leaving. She was used to hearing  this from him and paid it no mind. The next day, Mary found his wife,Peggy, a maid, crying. Peggy said Reyes had been drinking the night before and they had a fight when she refused to leave with him. Mary was reading in the library before lunch when Reyes came in. They spoke a few words when he pulled a gun from his pants pocket and   pulled the trigger within point blank range of her face. Luckily, the gun misfired. He tried again and Mary leapt to her feet and ran. She entered  the kitchen, Peggy, and Theodore Falkenstrom, her chauffeur, saw what  was happening. Ted tackled the cook and grabbed the gun. Peggy ran  to get the breathless Mary a nitroglycerine tablet and Ted went and threw the gun over a garden wall. The butler ran down the street to get  help thinking he was the intended victim. As Mary was in the hall on her  way to phone the police, she saw a young man standing outside the door. The boy said he was looking for a job as a gardener's assistant. "Young man," Mary said, "you'll have to come back later. There is a
 man here trying to kill me." The boy never returned.As Mary stood at the phone, again in the library, Reyes came up behind her wielding a long carving knife in each hand. Ted and the gardener came running in and again knocked him down. Peggy sat on his chest,and Ted held his arms getting cut by the flailing knives. Finally, the police arrived and took Reyes away. Mary's son Alan flew up that night to be with his mother. The next  morning he gave her the news that Reyes had hung himself in his jail cell. A Catholic priest allowed him to be buried in sacred ground since  he was "Plainly of unsound mind." Mary had no anger against the  long-time cook and paid for his funeral  After all this, there was still more in store for Mary Roberts Rinehart and the town of Bar Harbor. The summer was very hot and dry, and in October a small grass fire turned into an inferno. More than 17,000 acres and almost 250 houses burnt including Mary's Farview.She wrote several more books, including a private memoir for her children before she succumbed to a final heart attack in 1958.  While she lived in Bar Harbor the latter part of her life, her presence  there has never left. Farview is located on Eden Street where the Wonder View Inn is now located. Still, the view from the hilltop is breathtaking and the grounds beautiful.

Regina Maria Roche (nee. Dalton) is considered today to be a minor Gothic novelist who wrote very much in the shadow of Ann Radcliffe. She was however a best seller in her own time. the popularity of her third novel, The Children of the Abbey, rivaled that of Ann Radcliffe’s The Mysteries of Udolpho. The Children of Abbey  was one of the period’s most popular novels, a sentimental Gothic Romance. Her book, Clermont¸ was Roche’s only real attempt at writing a truly Gothic novel, and is decidedly more ‘horrible’ than anything else she wrote. Both novels went through several editions and were translated into both French and Spanish. Clermont was one of the books satirized by Austen in Northanger Abbey.

Editorial Reviews: Book Description
Will Rogers was first an Indian, a cowboy then a national figure. He now is a legend. Born in 1879 on a large ranch in the Cherokee Nation near what later would become Oologah, Oklahoma, Will Rogers was taught by a freed slave how to use a lasso as a tool to work Texas Longhorn cattle on the family ranch.
During his lifetime, he traveled around the globe three times - meeting people, covering wars, talking about peace and learning everything possible.
He wrote six books. In fact he published more than two million words. He was the first big time radio commentator, was a guest at the White House and his opinions were sought by the leaders of the world.
Review: Political humor from 1924! I've always heard how great Will Rogers was, but nothing I've seen by him ever impressed me as being remotely funny. His signature line that always shows up in references is "I never met a man I didn't like" (which has almost the same rhythm as W.C. Fields' "Never Give a Sucker an Even Break"), and that's nice, but it's not funny.  Apparently, Rogers was on stage somewhere in vaudeville once doing his lariat-spinning routine when he decided to make an unscripted crack. "Swinging a rope ain't bad, as long as it ain't from your neck," he said. And the crowd went nuts. I don't see it, myself. Then again, I don't see the rope-spinning part as being all that great on its own. So I got this book, which is 350 pages of Will Rogers from when he was in the Ziegfeld Follies, although these aren't the Follies routines themselves. Some of the lines no doubt are, but most of it was designed to be read. And some of it is (this is a line I'm required by law to say) as relevant today as it was when it was written: "With all the mechanical improvements they have in the way of adding machines, and counting machines, they can't seem to invent anything to take the place of the old Political mode of counting -- two for me and one for you. More people have been elected between Sundown and Sunup, than ever were elected between Sunup and Sundown." It's a shame I don't put political quotes in my .signature, because that one seems pretty good. Anyway, Will Rogers was mighty popular in his time, and was in 54 movies from 1918 through 1935, many of them with titles like "Cupid the Cowpuncher." His humor isn't particularly funny anymore, but it's at least readable. And it's fun reading contemporary jokes about Presidents Taft and Wilson. I am distinctly pleased with this purchase. Did I mention that it still has its dust cover? I'm quite impressed that it survived 77 years.

Richmond Times Dispatch daily newspaper: Richmond, Virgina ~ Saturday, August 17, 1935. Headline: Will Rogers and Wiley Post are instantly killed in crash of plane in Northern Alaska.~ Died in Icy Waters of Alaska River" Other stories featured:  "The rope that started Will's career - It was the cowboy-humorist's skill with a rope that started him on the raod to fame when he got his first job as rope-twirler with a medicine show." "World Leaders Are Shocked By Deaths of Rogers, Post."  "Off to Battle the Stratosphere" - clad in an oxygen helmet, Post in the "Winnie Mae" tried for an altitude record in 1934.  He beat the old but not sufficient to be allowed a new."  "They Lived and Died the Best of Pals."  "As the Film Fans Knew Him -  In just such homey roles as this one, Will endeared himself to the moviegoers with his true characterizations."

Will Rogers was a well-known and well-loved cowboy, radio entertainer, and film star. 
Wiley Post was a flight hero who set an around-the-world flight record in 1933.

Will Rogers was first an Indian, a cowboy then a national figure. He now is a legend.Born in 1879 on a large ranch in the Cherokee Nation near what later would become Oologah, Oklahoma, Will Rogers was taught by a freed slave how to use a lasso as a tool to work Texas Longhorn cattle on the family ranch. As he grew older, Will Rogers' roping skills developed so special that he was listed in the Guinness Book of Records for throwing three lassos at once: One rope caught the running horse's neck, the other would hoop around the rider and the third swooped up under the horse to loop all four legs.Will Rogers' unsurpassed lariat feats were recorded in the classic movie, "The Ropin' Fool."His hard-earned skills won him jobs trick roping in wild west shows and on the vaudeville stages where, soon, he started telling small jokes.Quickly, his wise cracks and folksy observations became more prized by audiences than his expert roping. He became recognized as being a very informed and smart philosopher--telling the truth in very simple words so that everyone could understand. After the 10th grade, Will Rogers dropped out of school to become a cowboy in a cattle drive. He always regretted that he didn't finish school, but he made sure that he never stopped learning--reading, thinking and talking to smart people. His hard work paid off. Will Rogers was the star of Broadway and 71 movies of the 1920s and 1930s; a popular broadcaster; besides writing more than 4,000 syndicated newspaper columns and befriending Presidents, Senators and Kings. During his lifetime, he traveled around the globe three times-- meeting people, covering wars, talking about peace and learning everything possible.He wrote six books. In fact he published more than two million words. He was the first big time radio commentator, was a guest at the White House and his opinions were sought by the leaders of the world. Inside himself, Will Rogers remained a simple Oklahoma cowboy. "I never met a man I didn't like," was his credo of genuine love and respect for humanity and all people everywhere. He gave his own money to disaster victims and raised thousands for the Red Cross and Salvation Army. At home, either on his ranch in Oklahoma or California, he always enjoyed riding horseback, roping steers or playing polo. He would scratch his head, grin and quip that he figured there was something wrong with anybody that didn't like a horse.  He always thought of himself as first a caring member of the human race, American, then a Cherokee Indian; a faithful husband and a father. Even though he was the top-paid star in Hollywood, he was a family man. Will Rogers was very close to his wife, Betty, and their four children.  Will Rogers Jr., 1911-1993, starred as his Father in two feature movies and was a war hero, a successful actor and a Congressman. Mary Rogers, 1913-1989, was a Broadway actress. Jim Rogers, 1915-2000, after starring in some cowboy movies as a young man, spent his life as a horse and cattle rancher. Betty and Will Rogers's youngest son, Fred, died of diphtheria when he was two. There were eight children born to Will Rogers' parents, but only four reached adulthood on the rugged frontier of 19th Century Indian Territory. While a fast horse thrilled Will Rogers, he also loved flying. It was on a flight to Alaska in 1935 with a daring one-eyed Oklahoma pilot named Wiley Post that their plane crashed and both men lost their lives.In mourning, the world reflected on Will Rogers' words:
"Live your life so that whenever you lose, you're ahead."
"If you live life right, death is a joke as far as fear is concerned."
