Mister Ron's Basement #1090

In 1921, The Authors' League of America published of book of 'the Personal Confessions of Well-known American Authors as to their Literary Beginnings' entitled 'My Maiden Effort.'

Some of these included authors have been featured at times in the Basement, and we are reading their contributions to the collection this week.

Josephine Dodge Daskam Bacon has been a favorite of Mister Ron's for a long time. Here we include one of her earliest published efforts, from McClure's Magazine of December 1900, concerning a kindergarten student with a mean streak. It's called 'The Madness of Philip.'

Time: approx twenty-nine minutes
