     For months past I have been working on the "State
Literature of the United States." I have written hun-
dreds of letters to Librarians, to University Professors, to
State Historical Societies, and to State Superintendents of
Public Instruction. I have met with some difficulties in
the obtaining of material, for even where bibliographies
and histories of literature exist, it is not always possible
to learn of them. I have been much surprised and am
very grateful for the interest manifested in the work and
for the readiness with which replies have been given to
letters and questionnaires.
     As far as I have been able to learn, there is no book
that treats of the literature of the different states.  It is
seldom even that the state as a unit is mentioned in a
text book on American literature. However, nearly all
of the states have authors who have written books about
their state literature and as the wealth of the material and
the number of authors in the state increase, so will the in-
terest in local and state literature tend to increase. I have
found my subject a very interesting one and hope that this
little outline may serve to direct attention toward Ameri-
can state literature.
     I have been very successful in obtaining material, es-
pecially so in regard to a list of authors, so that it has
been a difficult question to know what authors to name in
so short a list as I have been able to present. The over-
lappage of states also is a difficult question. I have given
no author a residence in a state unless he has been placed
there by some state authority. I have named, insofar as I



have been able, a representative work of each author
     It will be impossible for me to make an acknow-
ledgement of all the bibliographies and histories of liter-
ature used, as they include those in the Lawrence and
Topeka Libraries, besides many loans from libraries all
over the United States.    "Who's Who in America"
gives a bibliography of the living representative authors in
the United States. "The Library of Southern Litera-
ture," published by the Martin and Hoyt Company, At-
lanta, Georgia, in I913 and "Southern Literature," by
Louise Manly, published in 1895, give a bibliography for
the following Southern states: Alabama, Arkansas,
Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mis-
sissippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Calolina, Ten-
nessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
    It will also be impossible for me to make an ac-
knowledgement of personal help received. I am grate-
ful for the courtesies shown me by the Librarians of the
Lawrence and the Topeka Libraries. I am indebted to
Professor E. M. Hopkins, and to Professor C. G. Dun-
lap, of the University of Kansas, for helpful ideas.  I
wish especially to acknowledge my indebtedness to Pro-
fessor Selden L. Whitcomb, of the University of Kan-
sas, for helping in the work throughout the year.
    Corrections and suggestions are earnestly invited and
will be thankfully received.

The State Unit in Literature and the Authors Who Have
    Been and Are Acknowledged Leaders in American
    The state as a unit in the literature of the United
States has not been given much prominence in the past
because nearly all of the principal authors have lived in
a few states in the East. Now all of the states have
been populated and have organized governments and are
forming a literature of their own.
    Each state has civil, historical and physical conditions
which affect its literature. The character of the inhabit-
ants of the state has an influence upon state literature.
Then, too, there are the writers themselves, especially the
principal ones who influence the total state literature
more or less. The state as a unit in literature is being
emphasized by the State Historical Societies that now
collect a copy of every book that is written by its state

 Treatment of the State in American Literature.
     "The history of Alabama embraces a large number
of writers and authors. Many of these have possessed
marked individuality and their lives and labors have re-
flected honor upon the state. Their work has been of a
high class and includes every department of literature,-
poetry, fiction, history, law, and science."-Owen's edi-
tion of Pickett's "History of Alabama."
Notes on State Literature.
     Alabama became a state during the period of the great
western expansion of the United States. With prosperity
came an increased activity in literature, especially through
the agency of the press. Probably the first literary pro-
duction of the state was a little book of poems by Wil-
liam R. Smith. Mirs. Caroline Lee Hentz was the first
writer of fiction. M\Irs. Augusta Evans and Miss MIary
Johnston are probably the two best known authors of
Alabama. Mrs. Evans' works have been translated into
French and German and an Alabama writer says of Miss
Johnston, "As a writer of fiction, she has achieved the
most remarkable literary success yet known to Southern
    -Notes from Literary History of Alabama."
      Thomas NV. Owen, Carrolton.




Use in State Schools.
     "No text book containing exclusively the work of
Alabamrna authors is studied in the schools of Alabama.
Some local authors and their -,works are presented to the
children through the initiative of wide-awake teachers."-
Willi am F. Fearin, State Superintendent of Education.

Treatment of the State in American Literature.
    James H. Mc Clintock, of Phoenix, says: "Arizona is
a new land in the breeding of authors, though much has
been written of her by outsiders, who should be credited
to their homes, in every land under the sun. Arizona has
many features peculiar to herself and of them tons of
manuscripts have been written. But in all this she has
developed no really distinctive literature within  her-
Notes on State Literature.
    The best literary work in Arizona is being done in
the women's clubs which are found in every settlement,
however small.  Some of her best known poets are:
Sharlot Hall, Harrison Conrad, and Andrew Dowing.
Some of her other best native authors are: De Long and
Bourke, historians; Robinson, fiction writer; Poston, the
poet; and Kunze author of "Cactus and Flora"-Notes
from "Arizonia Historia."

Notes on State Literature.
    Arkansan literature contains much interesting ma-
terial about the Indians and the early travels of De Soto.
For twenty years Colonel Noland was a contributor to
every leading newspaper in Arkansas and to the greater
papers of St. Louis. He wrote under the non de plume
of "Pete Whetstone" for the New York "Spirit of the
Times" under the caption of "Scenes and Characters in
Arkansas."  Alice French ("Octave Thanet,") while
not a resident of Arkansas, still spends some time there
each year and about a third of her literary work has been
prepared in her home near Clover Bend. Her "Knitters



of the Sun" and "Expiation" are Arkansas stories-Notes
from Historical Collections.

Use in State Schools.
     "There is no compilation of Arkansan literature
which is used in the public schools. The nearest approach
to this is "I\Iakers of Arkansas History," by Dr. J. H.
Reynolds, who is now President of Hendrix College, at
Conway, Arkansas." George B. Cook, Superintendent
