Description

Dorothy Parker (1893-1967) Dorothy Parker was a staff writer for Vanity Fair and Vogue, and contributed stories, poems and reviews to the New Yorker, Life, and Esquire. She became a founding member of the Algonquin Round Table, an informal gathering of writers who lunched at the Algonguin Hotel in NYC and whose members were known for their scathing wit. She won an O. Henry Award for her short story The Big Blonde and an Oscar for her screenplay for A Star is Born.

Ogden Nash (1902-1974) Odgen Nash attended Harvard, but dropped out after one year. He worked briefly on Wall Street and as schoolteacher, later taking a job with the publishing house Doubleday. Nash's first poems appeared in the New Yorker, but he was also a frequent contributor to Harper's, The Saturday Evening Post, Life and Vogue. Nash was a keen observer of American social life, and frequently mocked religious moralizing and conservative politicians.

Phyllis McGinley (1905-1978) Phyllis McGinley was elected to the National Academy of Arts and Letters in 1955. She was the first writer to win the Pulitzer for her light verse collection, Times Three: Selected Verse from Three Decades with Seventy New Poems. In addition to many other books of poetry, she also wrote essays, children's books and musical review.
