‎Autographed Letter 1937 by Phelps William Lyon American Author‎

‎<p>A brief note 'Easter Greetings' from your friend Wm Lyon Phelps 1937 to Ms Sarah J Newland. Some folds present otherwise a nice piece. Would go well with a Pheps Novel or book.</p><p>William Lyon Phelps January 2 1865 New Haven Connecticut - August 21 1943 New Haven Connecticut was an American author critic and scholar. He taught the first American university course on the modern novel. He was a well-known speaker who drew large crowds. He had a radio show wrote a daily syndicated newspaper column lectured frequently and published numerous popular books and articles.</p><p>Early life and education</p><p>Phelps' father Sylvanus Dryden Phelps was a Baptist minister. William as a child was a friend of Frank Hubbard the son of Langdon Hubbard a lumber merchant who founded Huron City Michigan. Phelps earned a B.A. in 1887 writing an honors thesis on the Idealism of George Berkeley. He earned his A.M. in 1891 from Yale and in the same year his Ph.D. from Harvard. He taught at Harvard for a year and then returned to Yale where he was offered a position in the English department. He taught at Yale the rest of life.</p><p>Phelps was engaged to marry Frank's sister Annabel when Langdon Hubbard died. Annabel inherited the family estate and William christened it "The House of the Seven Gables" after the Nathanial Hawthorne story of the same name. Her father built the house in 1882 on a bluff overlooking Lake Huron. The couple was married on the estate on December 21 1892 and it became their summer home.</p><p>Phelps converted the space in front of the house from a trotting track into a private 18-hole golf course golf course in 1899 and they lived there part-time from 1893 through 1933 when he retired and full-time through 1938. They had no children.</p><p>Academic and professional life</p><p>Phelps was very athletic and played what was then the new game of baseball as well as golf and lawn tennis. He studied the novelists lie Leo Tolstoy and Ivan Turgenev. During his first year at Yale he offered a course in modern novels. This brought the university considerable attention nationally and internationally which upset his tenured peers at Yale. He agreed to give up the course for a while to avoid the media attention. Responding to popular demand by his students and to avoid scrutiny he taught the same course outside the official curriculum. Once the unfavorable attention died down he was appointed Lampson Professor of English Literature in 1901.</p><p>Phelps' courses became the most popular and well attended on campus. He had an engaging speaking style and was personally involved with what he taught. He wrote about English and European literature. During trips to Europe he met many of the leading writers of the turn of the 19th century.</p><p>Phelps taught at Yale for 41 years before retiring in 1933. From 1941 to 1943 he was the director of the Hall of Fame for Great Americans.</p><p>Public speaking and writing</p><p>Phelps could be an incandescent and inspirational orator drawing large audiences wherever he spoke. He lectured on the famous Town Hall Lecture circuit nationwide.5 During the summer of 1922 the pastor of the Huron City Methodist Episcopal Church asked him to preach regularly for the season. He had previously preached there occasionally and his afternoon services started to attract large crowds. The little church was remodeled twice in 1925 and again in 1929 to accommodate the crowds. His wife's parents made substantial contributions that made the expansions possible.</p><p>At the height of his speaking popularity from 800 and 1000 people attended his summer services. Some first hand accounts describe overflow crowds sitting outside the packed church so they could listen through the windows.6 He became known throughout the world as a leading literary scholar educator author book critic and preacher.</p><p>After his retirement from Yale he continued to present public lectures radio talks and write a daily newspaper column about books and authors. He continued to give a series of Sunday sermons each summer and offer a 20-week lecture course in literature during the winter. He presented several college commencement addresses each year and served as a judge of the Pulitzer Prize for literature and on book club selection committees.</p><p>Legacy</p><p>During his time as a Yale professor Phelps invited a number of the Senior Class' notable students together in 1884 and founded The Pundits. They dined weekly at Mory's a private club adjacent to the campus. The group regularly lampooned the campus with elaborate pranks.</p><p>Phelps encouraged Alexander Smith Cochran to dedicate the Cochran family's extensive collection of Shakespearean folios and other rare books to endow a private club for the arts and humanities. This became the Elizabethan Club which is still active as of 2011.</p><p>In 1938 Life magazine ran an article profiling Phelps' life. His wife Annabel died of a stroke in 1939 and William died in 1943. Phelps bequeathed the house to his niece Carolyn Hubbard Parcells Lucas. In 1951 a museum was opened in the home to house Phelps' library and to focus on the history of Huron City. In 1964 the Pointe aux Barques Life Saving Station house was moved here. In 1987 Carolyn Lucas died and the William Lyon Phelps Foundation took over the house and museum.</p><p>Quotes</p><p>"If you develop the absolute sense of certainty that powerful beliefs provide then you can get yourself to accomplish virtually anything including those things that other people are certain are impossible."</p><p>"The happiest people are those who think the most interesting thoughts. Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development who love good music good books good pictures good company good conversation are the happiest people in the world. And they are not only happy in themselves they are the cause of happiness in others."</p><p>"If at first you don't succeed find out if the loser gets anything."</p><p>"This is the first test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him."</p><p>The professor asked his students to discuss the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins' "sprung rhythm" technique. One young man handed in his exam reading "Only God knows the answer to your question. Merry Christmas." Professor Phelps returned the paper after Christmas with the note "Happy New Year. God gets an A—you get an F."</p>‎
