BAAS 2012: Missing Ralph Keeler

(Ralph Keeler, via)
Later today I'm going to be speaking at this year's British Association for American Studies Conference, hosted by the University of Manchester. My paper's entitled: "Missing Ralph Keeler: Mark Twain, William Dean Howells, Thomas Bailey Aldrich, and the life and death of a Literary Vagabond." It's a starting point for a longer article I plan to write over the coming months. And if you want to know a little more about the enigmatic figure of Keeler, you can take a look at my new blog, American Scrapbook.
