Roger and Mike,

Sorry gentlemen, but neither is correct..

Was there a certain country she wanted to visit, but it never took place?


RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia - Rob Wick - 10-23-2020 08:46 AM

Sorry Roger, but that's not it.

First clue: It has nothing to do with Lincoln.

RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia - RJNorton - 10-23-2020 02:01 PM

Does it involve meeting someone whom she never could?


RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia - Rob Wick - 10-23-2020 02:16 PM

Sorry Roger, but it doesn't.

Next clue: It would eventually happen, but longer after Tarbell's death.

I was going to guess marriage and a family, but I can see that's wrong. - Confused

so let's try, have someone (relative) named after her,
or a building at a school named after her.


RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia - Rob Wick - 10-23-2020 02:59 PM

Good guesses Gene, but neither is correct. Actually, there was a woman's dorm named after Tarbell at Allegheny College while she was still living. However, she refused to let the college name the library room with her Lincoln collection after her.

Does it have to do with another writer?


RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia - Rob Wick - 10-23-2020 04:24 PM

There is another writer involved, yes.

Maybe Carl Sandburg won an award that she was only granted posthumously?


RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia - Rob Wick - 10-24-2020 08:11 AM

Roger, that's a perfectly reasonable guess, but not correct.

Next clue: This helps to explain why Tarbell's papers are in two different archives.

RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia - Rob Wick - 10-24-2020 06:18 PM

Next clue: Part of the reason Tarbell was unable to accomplish this was her fear of it "getting musty."

Publish a biography of a certain person?


RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia - Rob Wick - 10-24-2020 09:21 PM

That's a good guess Susan, but that isn't it.

Guess it's time for another clue.

Tarbell talked about this in 1921 with none other than S.S. McClure, but nothing ever came of it.
