Praise from one Mencken scholar to another

January 23, 2012

Marion Elizabeth Rodgers' recent letter praising the work of Charles A. Fecher, the biographer and scholar of Henry Louis Mencken who died on January 16, was right on target.

But it should also be noted that Ms. Rodgers is the author of the best and most complete overall biography ever written about Mr. Mencken entitled "Mencken: The American Iconoclast" and published in 2005.
