Excerpt from Iowa Authors and Their Works a Contribution Toward a Bibliography

In 1913 the Honorable Horace E. Deemer, who served as chairman of the book committee for seventeen years of the twenty-three of which he was a member of our Board of Trustees, requested of the Curator some scheme for disclosing whether there was any substance in the meaning of the phrase, then gaining currency, "Iowa authors and their works." There was submitted, in response, and approved by our Board of Trustees at the instance of Judge Deemer the following


Miss Marple, assistant and librarian:

Please assemble all information upon Iowa authors and their works, accessible in our collections or available elsewhere, upon a catalogue of cards after library methods, but so elaborated as to aid the amateur as well as expert searcher. Please disclose the existence of, and work done by any one fairly entitled to be regarded an author or writer of a book, and so connected with the, state as to have been sometime within the meaning of the term "an Iowa author."

When your cards exhibit a reasonably complete list, they may be so copied as to serve the printer and be run as current matter in sections in the Annals of Iowa to the end that public criticism and suggestion may, by the time the list has all appeared, be relied upon to complete the list. When the entire alphabet has thus appeared the whole will be reprinted in book form and issued as the contribution of the Historical Department of Iowa toward a bibliography of Iowa authors and their work.

A tentative list of Iowa Authors and their works as a contribution toward a bibliography was issued in September, 1914, bearing the following


Charles Aldrich, founder of the Historical Department of Iowa, regarded attainment in the arts as the equal In importance of military prowess or political achievement. His successors have observed that while scholarly attention has been turned to Iowa valor and statesmanship, the arts, including letters, have remained almost unnoticed.
