Paul Underwood Kellogg to Jane Addams, October 03, 1911


Oct. 3, 1911.
Miss Jane Addams,
Hull House,
Chicago, Ill.

Dear Miss Addams:

The Editorial Grist in which we have brought out the short timely comment of some of those who stand closest to "The Survey" has proved a very telling feature during the year. We find that people are just as much interested -- perhaps even more so -- in how you look at a thing, and Prof. Patten, and Mrs. Kelley and the rest, as they are in reading the chroniclings of what is going forward. Signed editorials are a distinctive feature of The Survey, made use of as a piece of team play in no other magazine so far as we know. We want to continue them this year and want to know. We want to continue them this year and want to include some from you. The Survey is, as you know, a cooperative undertaking and we have not yet reached the point where we can pay for this sort of contribution. But we invite those who write for the Editorial Grist to write on the subjects which lie closest to them and which they want to put before the whole group of people reached by The Survey (and after all that is a rather remarkable group, built up by just this sort of co-operation); -- and we hope that the bargain is not altogether lop-sided.

These editorials range from 300 to 1,000 words in length and we would like to count on, say, one a month from those who are cooperating in the plan -- at least regularly enough so that our readers will look for them.

If you feel that you can cooperate another year, won't you let me know by an early mail so that we can include your name in a list of announcements?

Paul U. Kellogg [signed]
