Treatment of the State in American Literature.

A professor of English in a Massachusetts University
says: "Fifty per cent of American belles-lettres up to
1875 was written in Massachusetts."


Notes on State Literature.

Her early literature was influenced by religious in-
terests. The only province that could compare with
Massachusetts in literary achievement was Pennsylvania.
The first ambitious poetical efforts in Massachusetts
were in the direction of translation. Massachusetts is a
great literary state and holds a national position. Boston
at any time was a literary center. Harvard University
has sent her men all over the United States. Notes from
Onderdouk's History of American Literature.


Use in State Schools.

"Massachusetts uses many selections from her own
state authors in her public schools." W. I. Hamilton,
Massachusetts Board of Education.

Notes on State Literature.

Some Minnesota authors of the period of French
exploration are: Radison, Duluth, Hennepin, La Salle,
Perrot, Le Sueur, Verendrye, Carver, Thompson, Mack-
enzie, Henry, Cass, Schoolcraft, Long, Keating, Beltram-
ini, and Zebulon Montgomery Pike are some authors of
the fur-trading period. Minnesota has an active and
thoroughly organized Library Association. This Asso-
ciation has done much to advance the literary interests of
the state. It also furnished books in the foreign languages
to the foreigners of the state that it may educate them
and make them better citizens. Some good work has been
done by Minnesota authors in the German, Norwegian,
and Swedish languages. In the book entitled "Master-
pieces from Swedish Literature in English" are found
many translations by Minnesota authors.

Treatment of the State in American Literature.

W. L. Weber, in "Mississippi as a Field for the
Student of Literature, " published in 1898, says: "The
list of Mississippi books is not long; the average quality
is not high ; of pure literature, of the real literature of
power we have contributed scarcely fifty pages to the
world's store."


Notes on State Literature.

Mississippi has contributed much more to- pol-
itics than to literature. With the single exception of the
poems of Irvin Russel, Mississippi has produced nothing
which literary men have been willing to give a place in
American literature. She has many interesting Indian
legends and negro folk tales, and accounts of the doings
of Mississippian laws that should be collected and made
a part of her literature. William Ward is one of Miss-
issippi's best poets and is the author of the well known
poem "Katie Did." Notes from "Mississippi as a Field
for the Student of Literature."

F. A. Sampson, Columbia

Use in State Schools.

Howard A. Gass, State Superintendent of Public
Schools of Missouri, says: "At present we are not using
any selections from Missouri authors as supplementary
work in the teaching of literature. Occasionally some
thing is used from the pen of Professor T. Berry Smith,
Fayette, Missouri, as supplementary work in literature



Bibliographies and Histories of Literature.

No bibliography or history of Montana literature
has ever been compiled. The most complete bibliography
probably now existing is the printed cards in the Library
of Congress. The Montana Historical Library contains
about three hundred cards. "Montana Literature Re-
view and Comments," a paper prepared and read by John
F. Davies before the Annual Meeting of the Montana
State Library Association, and which has been published,
gives a short bibliography of Montana authors.

Treatment of the State in American Literature.

John F. Davies, in "Montana Literature Review
and Comments," says: "In considering the subject of
the bibliography of the state, I have had in mind several
things that were desirable. I would like to see in a list
by itself the names of all the productions written by resi-
dents of Montana. In another section I would like to
see anything about Montana published by other people,
particularly by the known authors of the world. 1 think
the number of these productions and the people who
spoke about them would be a surprise to many people."



Notes on State Literature.

In the early 3o's and 40'$ Europeans had an interest
in explorations in the Montana region and the greater
part of the history of Montana was published in period-
icals printed in England. Some authors who have writ-
ten about Montana are: Henry W. Longfellow, "The
Revenge of Rain-in-the-Face" ; Edmund Clarence Sted-
man, "Custer and Charles Dudley Warner/' a chapter on
Montana in his "South and West." Notes from "Mon-
