February, 2012 -- Ruth's Sister, Emma

 

We have been given permission to post an article by Professor Scott Emmert of Wisconsin: he has written about Emma Suckow's 1920 anti-war story called "The Soul That Sinneth," which was published in the August 1920 edition of the Midland. She went on to publish "Dissipation" (May 1920) and "True Love" (June 1922) in the Midland. Emma was Ruth Suckow's sister.  In addition, he had a copy of her first story, and we will post it as well on the short story page.  His essay is posted below as "World War I Stories in the Midland."

 
 
Note: I am adding a new page, to archive older, print based resources. Some of these can be obtained through the Special Collections in Iowa City, or through a used book seller, or University Library.
