erend Theodore F. Brewer, a prominent educator and editor of Our Brother in Red;* Mabel Washbourne Anderson, a Cherokee writer; Kate Burwell; and Dr. Charles N. Gould. The magazine also attracted non-territorial writers, including Hamlin Garland.
Twin Territories, for most of its life, was edited or published by peoples of American Indian descent. It is an important source of literary efforts by Indian authors and poets, much of which treated native themes and used native settings. The magazine serves, too, as a historical repository for Oklahoma and Indian Territory culture at the turn of the century.
