RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia
This one should be fairly easy.

Whose memoirs did Tarbell ghostwrite?

RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia
This trivia question will require research in Tarbell's papers for the answer.

From 1916 to 1923, Tarbell was contracted with various lyceum groups to give talks around the country. Most of her talks centered around labor relations and World War I, although she did offer talks about Lincoln. There were at least two different lectures she presented. Name their titles.

There will be no clues.

I guess that would depend on the tip. I can tell you the answer will not be found in her Lincoln-related correspondence.

RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia
Was either one of them titled "The Golden Rule in Business?" or "The Cause of Unemployment?"

RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia
Sorry Roger, no.

I will say that Lincoln was in the title of both (OK, maybe one clue).

RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia
Well, I guess I'm going to have to break down and give another clue. If you look at Tarbell's papers by subject, go to the Affiliated Lyceum Bureau. The answer, while still hard to find, will be there.

Rob, can you say if I am on the right (or wrong) track?
