Biography of Henry Blake Fuller

American novelist, essayist, critic and satirist.

Henry Blake Fuller was born and grew up in Chicago, and although he found much to criticize in his native city which led him to travel widely and even attempt to relocate in Boston, he never left the Midwest and died there in 1929.

As a novelist, Fuller's writing encompassed two different genres: realistic depictions of the Midwest and fanciful travel romances with European settings. After his first literary success, The Chevallier of Pensieri-Vani, in 1890 and the subsequent but less popular The Chatelaine of La Trinite in 1892, Fuller turned to domestic subject matter with The Cliff-Dwellers in 1893. This latter work, the first of his Chicago novels, was a devastating attack on the city, prompted by his disgust at the commercialism that he felt destroyed the original idealistic goals of the World's Columbian Exposition. The realistic style of The Cliff-Dwellers and his following novel With the Procession, was admired by William Dean Howells and Hamlin Garland, but to Fuller's dismay was a disappointment to his champion in the Eastern establishment, Charles Eliot Norton.

By the end of the 1890's, Fuller had won himself a place in Chicago's art colony. An amateur musician and always interested in architecture, art and music, he joined the Little Room, an elite group of artists and writers such as Harriet Monroe, Eugene Field, Hamlin Garland, Louis Sullivan and Lorado Taft. Referred to as "Henry B." he became the club's most active and admired member, supporting himself by writing book reviews, sketches and editorials in which he began to present Chicago in a more favorable light.

Repulsed by the Spanish-American War, Fuller joined the anti-imperialist movement and in 1900 he privately printed a volume of savagely satiric verses directed at President McKinley entitled The New Flag. He followed this with a series of speeches and articles which criticized what he perceived as the philistine commercialism and imperialistic attitudes of American society. However, during the next decade he also continued to write book reviews, short stories, essays and Letters to the Editor pieces for various newspapers including the Chicago Evening Post, the Chicago Record-Herald and the New York Times. Some of the periodicals in which his pieces appeared included Bookman, Commonweal, Nation and the Saturday Evening Post. When Harriet Monroe's publication, Poetry: A Magazine of Verse was started in 1912, Fuller assisted her in reviewing, proof-reading and dummy-pasting, which he continued to do until his death.

In 1919, Fuller wrote Bertram Cope's Year, a novel with a homosexual theme. It was not a success and Fuller abandoned the novel form until 1929, when he returned to the travel romance with Gardens of This World. His last effort, published posthumously in 1930, was a result of his interest in Hollywood and the cinema entitled Not on the Screen. During his last decade Fuller produced indifferent sketches and stories but as a reviewer and independent critic he was able to promote such writers as Louis Bromfield, James Branch Cabell, Sinclair Lewis, Vachel Lindsay, Glenway Wescott and Thornton Wilder.

Scope and Content of the Collection

The collection consists of the outgoing correspondence of Henry Blake Fuller, incoming letters addressed to him from family, friends and literary associates, and Fuller's published and unpublished work, European travel notes and mementos, drawings, photographs, post cards, theater programs, music and other miscellaneous items. The collection documents Fuller's literary and artistic activities and interests both in Chicago and the East, and the many friendships he developed during his lifetime. There is also material collected by his nieces Helen and Louise Ranney related to Fuller's literary output, and two artifacts: Fuller's portable typewriter, given to him by Hobart C. Chatfield-Taylor (date unknown), and a posthumous award from the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame, 2000.

An appendix to the collection (under "Related Material") contains photocopies of his letters, primarily to Hamlin Garland, from the University of Southern California Library. An additional section under Related Material list printed maps owned by Fuller that have been separated from the collection and cataloged individually.

Narrative descriptions of the subject matter, types of material, and arrangement of each series are available through the organization section of the finding aid.

The bulk of the Henry Blake Fuller Papers consists of nine boxes of his work, both manuscript and published, diaries and travel journals and mementos, sketches, musical scores, theater programs, translations of Italian stories, and miscellaneous notes and jottings. This material also includes his youthful school journal "Allisonian Classical Academy;" The serialized version of Fuller's best-known book The Cliff-Dwellers, original manuscript and galley-proofs of his last romance, Gardens of This World; librettos and scores for two operettas, Mariquita (1888) and Pipistrello (1887); typescript of Not on the Screen (1930); albums of drawings of European scenes; and an original manuscript of Fuller's second Chicago novel, With the Procession. Reviews written by Fuller are filed under "Reviews" and the name of the serial for which he wrote the review. See Series 5: Subject Files for reviews of his works, along with royalty statements, publicity, and other material relating to Fuller's works. Galley proofs of his work Gardens of This World are stored in oversize folders at the end of the collection.

Information about Fuller's friends, his works, and other miscellaneous material. Includes several folders regarding Fuller's trips to Europe and elsewhere; his itineraries and the souvenirs he collected along the way. Most of the printed maps of various places in Europe visited by Fuller have been removed and cataloged separately; the only ones kept with the Fuller papers are the ones annotated by Fuller. See list in "Related Material" section of this finding aid for more details on maps that were cataloged separately. The folders entitled "Works" in this series contain information about Fuller's works and/or how much he was paid in royalties for them. There is a modern recording of a performance of Fuller's operetta Mariquita available on audiocassette.
