We made it to the 5th anniversary of the Ella Project. This has been a great year. The two goals we have for every year are to add the next book of Ella's in chronological order and to add one poem for every day of each year of the project. As of July 7th, Ella's 5th book (and first prose novel), Mal Moulee, has been added to our website. And after five years the website now has 1,830 poems listed in the Poem Index.
Member Leila de Araujo Derzi has unveiled her website gallery of photographs and Ella's poetry at http://www.ellawwilcox.hpg.ig.com.br/
Our Ella web site and full text books are being added to more and more indexes around the Internet. Recently, On-Line Books Page and the Celebration of Women Writers have added our books to their indexes. Hopefully this will result in even more people finding Ella's works.
Letters: I have gathered scores of Ella's personal letters from many universities around the country, and have gained permission to publish most of them on our web site. I am in the process of scanning and transcribing many of them.
Biography: "Ouija Board Messages for Ella Wheeler Wilcox" by Pauline Saltzman was recently added.
Articles: "A Last Interview" in The Criterion (October 21, 1899): 3-5.
Poems: Over 1,830 full text poems now available.
Bibliography: I continue to add cover photographs to the bibliography. I keep thinking I've identified all known titles and editions and then discover a new one about once every 2 months!
Music: I recently discovered the lost libretto of "The Victory"! The lyrics were written by Ella and the manuscript sent to John Philip Sousa for the music. While Mr. Sousa never wrote any known music for "The Victory", the manuscript did end up in the United States Marine Band and thanks to the generosity and help of their librarian, we now have a copy of the libretto.
Society: We now have 67 members worldwide.
I wish to thank the Ella Wheeler Wilcox Society of southern California and Charlotte Hanson for supporting the foundation of The Ella Wheeler Wilcox Society nationally.
