DHAN GOPAL MUKERJI (1890-1936) was an Indian intellect and author who studied in the United States, Scotland, and Japan, hoping to spread the culture and ideas of India to the Western world. Graduating from Standford with a metaphysics degree, Mukerji began writing prolifically in the 1920's while in New York, publishing works (mostly children's books) like Kari the Elephant and the Newberry Medal winning Gay Neck, the Story of a Pigeon. Many of his books, including his adult novels, drew upon his life in India and brought an unseen world to foreign audiences. BRUNO ROSELLI (1887-1980) came to America in 1907, becoming an Italian teacher and lecturer soon after his arrival, hired directly by Henry Marcus Leipziger to teach at several New York schools and colleges. Giving lectures on the art and culture of Italy, it was largely believed Roselli was trying to spread the influence of Italy to gain sympathy for his home country's battles and hardships in World War I. He had a particular long tenure at Vassar College as an Italian language teacher, proving popular for years until the fear of fascism grew in America and students and colleagues accused Rosselli of holding fascist sentiments. WALTER PRICHARD EATON (1878-1957) was a prominent American drama critic. His books included The American Stage Today (1908) and The Actor's Heritage (1924). He taught theatre at Columbia and elsewhere and wrote a Broadway play, Queen Victoria (1923). Although best known for his criticism, Eaton wrote on topics as diverse as wildlife and the Boy Scouts. Author WALTER HENRY OVERS wrote books including Sketches in Ebony and Ivory and Stories of African Life. Binding holes on left margin. Lightly toned. Slight surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
