ANDERSON, MARGARET C.: 1892-1973.

Margaret C. Anderson was born in Indianapolis, Ind., on Aug. 16, 1892, the daughter of Arthur and Jessie Shortridge Anderson. She attended Western College (Oxford, Ohio) at which time her family lived in Columbus, Ind. Beginning her career in the literary world in Chicago in 1912, she was first employed as a clerk in Browne's Bookstore located next door to the offices of DIAL, a literary review founded by Edgar Allan Poe. She soon joined the staff of DIAL, working in the printing room, and also wrote book reviews for CONTINENT and POST. In 1913 Miss Anderson became literary editor of CONTINENT and, at the age of twenty-one, began her own magazine entitled THE LITTLE REVIEW which was devoted to the arts. The magazine flourished from 1914 through the early 1920s as a forum for the avantgarde writers of the period. Among the coterie of authors later to become famous were Ezra Pound, Wallace Stevens, Ernest Hemingway, and Ford Madox Ford. James Joyce's Ulysses was first published in serial form in THE LITTLE REVIEW, resulting in a famous censorship trial in New York. In 1922 she went to Paris, leaving the magazine in the hands of Miss Jane Heap. The two women had previously taken THE LITTLE REVIEW to California in an attempt to revive its finances and in 1929 its last issue was published in Paris . Miss Anderson died in Le Cannet, France , in 1973.
