The early twentieth-century writer and editor agrees to sign a fan's book, signs name in black ink
Typed letter signed: "James Oppenheim" in black ink. 1 page, 8½x11. Glendale, California. November 5, 1921. In full: "Mr. Garrison, Your letter was forward to me here in Los Angeles. If you care to send your copy of The Mystic Warrior out to me, I shall be glad to autograph it. Yours sincerely". James Oppenheim (1882-1932) was an American poet, novelist and editor, best known as the founder and editor of The Seven Arts, an important twentieth-century literary magazine. He first came to prominence as a writer of short-stores and novels that depicted labor troubles with Fabian and suffragist themes in works such as The Nine-Tenths (1911) and Bread and Roses (1911); his other works include Monday Morning and Other Poems (1909), The Olympian (1913), War and Laughter (1916), The Mystic Warrior (1921) (mentioned in this letter), The Sea (1924) and American Types: A Preface to Analytic Psychology (1931). He severed as primary editor of The Seven Arts alongside writers such as Waldo Frank, George Jean Nathan, Louis Untermeyer, and Paul Rosenfield, and contributors including Sherwood Anderson, Van Wyck Brooks, Max Eastman, Robert Frost, and Amy Lowell, until he was blacklisted due to his opposition to U.S. entry into World War I.
