Circa: 1926
Manufacturer: William Phelps--American author

Letter dated April 14, 1926 typed by American author William Lyon Phelps of Yale University regarding the authorship history of the poem 'Casey at the Bat'.

The recipient of this letter was prominent American journalist Mark Sullivan (1874-1952). Sullivan was considered to be one of the most widely respected journalists of his day corresponding with Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover. Sullivan was also a confidant to Theodore Roosevelt as well as a good friend and confidant to Herbert Hoover. In addition to Presidents, Sullivan corresponded with many notable politicians, businessmen and literary figures of the day including Arthur Conan Doyle who he was good friends with as well as Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Orville Wright and many other prominent and influential people from the 1890's to mid 1900's.

Sullivan wrote and published between 1926-1935 a six volume book by the title 'Our Times 1900-1925' which chronicled the social and political history of American from the 1890's to the 1920's.

Sullivan correspondence can be found archived in the manuscript division of the Library of Congress and in the Herbert Hoover Institution Archives.

Most likely this correspondence was written by Phelps to Sullivan providing context for a historical reference or perspective being used in one of the volumes of the book 'Our Times 1900-1925' being prepared by Sullivan.

The letter which is signed in ink by Phelps is typed on stationery with 'YALE UNIVERSITY' printed letterhead. Stationery dimensions measure approximately 10.5"h x 7.25"w with typical fold creases and a paper clip stain with some tannish toning.

Would be glad to answer any questions you may have and/or provide a cost for mailing this item.
