Judson Welliver

Trevor Parry-Giles of the University of Maryland published a picture of Judson Welliver, who was Warren Harding's speechwriter and whose name is used for the society of former White House speechwriters, founded by William Safire.

Trevor published the picture, found by one of his students, on his blog, Rhetoric Matters, back in May-- and Judson Welliver's niece came across it in a Google search. She left a comment and apparently a correspondence has begun. It's big news for scholars of presidential speechwriting that Trevor may soon be able to tell us all more about the famous and elusive Judson Welliver.
