Her handwriting?

Sorry guys, but neither is what I'm looking for. This is e specific item that Tarbell wrote.

Like much of Tarbell's work, it started out as magazine articles and then became a book.

Napoleon Bonaparte?

Sorry, Roger, but it's isn't Bonaparte.

Her biography of Madam Roland?


RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia - Gene C - 01-17-2020 08:31 AM

Life of Elbert Gary ?

Sorry guys, but it isn't them. Since someone will get it by process of elimination, I'm going to add a couple of more parts. First, why did Tarbell not like it? Second, many critics were also less than enamored with the work. What was their issue?

Was the article entitled Making a Man of Herself?


RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia - Rob Wick - 01-17-2020 03:46 PM

Sorry Roger, but that's not it. I'll post another clue later today.

Tarbell's book, The Ways of Woman? Weren't some reformers, like Jane Addams, critical of Tarbell's writings on women's issues?


RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia - Rob Wick - 01-18-2020 10:15 AM

Steve,

Some reformers were indeed angry with Tarbell for her views on women, but she never apologized for them.

Next clue. The articles appeared in the American Magazine after Tarbell was no longer associated with it.

Flying — A Dream Come True! (?)


RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia - Rob Wick - 01-18-2020 04:23 PM

Sorry, Roger, but it isn't that.

Next clue: think RCA.
