I FIRST KNEW T. K. Whipple in the winter of 1912-13. He was a senior at Princeton then and editor of the Nassau Literary Magazine, and I was a freshman contributor. The Lit had been rather in eclipse up to the time that T. K.(whom the campus called "Teek") had taken command of it the year before. Robert Shafer, since known as a critic and a follower of Paul Elmer More, was, I believe, the first editor in a series that represented a new period of literary activity at Princeton--the first since the early nineties, the days of Booth Tarkington and Jesse Lynch Williams. Whipple took over from Shafer, and the succeeding boards included John Peale Bishop, Hamilton Fish Armstrong, Isador Kaufman, W. Stanley Dell, Raymond Holden, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Biggs, Jr., and myself. Among the contributors were Keene Wallis and A. O'Brien- Moore. Up to the time of Whipple's editorship the Lit had had the existence of a mouse that lurked timidly in a crevice of the college life. I remember Teek telling me of the hopelessness with which he and the other editors had canvassed the college rooms for subscriptions. The freshmen would buy tiger pictures, but they knew from the lack of confidence with which the salesmen for the Lit approached them that the magazine was not taken seriously.
