Abstract:

"This writer, having been acquainted with Mrs. Zelda Gibbons Mayer, sister of Floyd Gibbons, talked with her to determine what information on the famous journalist might be extant among the family records. The inquiry revealed that not only was Mrs. Mayer willing to make available an appreciable amount of unpublished material, but that Mrs. Mayer's younger brother, Mr. Edward Gibbons, also was prepared to provide considerable information for such a project. At Mrs. Mayer's suggestion, this writer also solicited the assistance of the writer James Warner Bellah, whose subsequent letter has contributed substantially to the available information. The problem, then, was to determine a convenient and concise form for presenting the details of Gibbons' life and writings in such a way that the information would be readily accessible. After a study of various types of reference works, the writer elected to use the form of a bio-bibliography in preparing this professional paper in partial fulfillment of the requirements for a Master's degree in Library Science. The first of three parts is a brief biography of Floyd Gibbons, in which the main events of his life are described and discussed with respect to their effect upon what Gibbons wrote. The second is a report and summary of the reactions of the reading public at large and of various reactions of the reading public at large and of various critical reviewers to Floyd Gibbons' books. Following these is a bibliography of works by and about Floyd Gibbons, with an introduction which explains fully its contents and organization"--
