Sample text

My story of the life and work of Enos Mills, following no formulas for biographical narrative, is but one of many that could be told. Mills was a colorful and a controversial man, one easily subject to a biographer's own ambivalence. If readers themselves arrive at a feeling of ambivalence about Mills, it would not, in my opinion, be an inappropriate result. To understand him as a man of striking originality and creative force, undercut by confusing and sometimes disruptive character traits, is to understand him fairly and realistically.

It has been my pleasure in the late stages of preparing this biography to know James H. Pickering, the resourceful editor of four of Mills's books, reissued in the late 1980s. His lucid commentaries and text annotations will be as useful to Mills's readers as they have been to me. He, along with many others, has been a steady source of encouragement, for which I acknowledge heartfelt thanks. Abundant gratitude is also extended to the following people for their advice, discussion, text review, production assistance, or creative prodding: Stanley Boucher, Liz Caile, Franklin Folsom, Joyce Gellhorn, Forrest Ketchin, Stuart Krebs, Rachel Paul, Walter Richards, Janet Robertson, Charles Trench and A.

Enos Mills belonged to the generation, born in the last third of the nineteenth century, that set the twentieth century on a course we still recognize today. Churchill, Gandhi, FDR, Lenin, Henry Ford, Albert Schweitzer, Frank Lloyd Wright, Freud, Jung, Caruso, Stravinsky, Eliot, Yeats, Madame Curie, and Einstein, are but random samples of twentieth-century genius born and formed before our century began. Mills entered the 1900s old enough to know something of life, but young enough to want to change it.
