RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia
You are correct Roger. In Ruth Randall's autobiography, she notes that as a young man, Randall became interested in Lincoln after reading Tarbell's series. Good job.

You win four free years at the University of Illinois, provided you can convince Randall to be your adviser.

However, Roger, if the free deal falls through you will have to pay out-state tuition!

RE: Tough Tarbell Trivia
OK, here's a follow-up. What work did Tarbell seek to do that was eventually done by Randall?

Rob and Joe, with the aging I've felt this summer due to the incredibly poor play of my beloved Chicago Cubs I doubt I have four years left. I will look for a younger person to whom to give this wonderful gift.

Sorry Roger, but that's not it.

First clue is a two-fer.

1. This had a specific title.
2. It would help to know Randall's bibliography.

Write a book, as Randall later did, on THE CIVIL WAR AND RECONSTRUCTION?
