The Hamlin Garland Society was formed at the American Literature Association conference in Baltimore on May 30, 1999.  The Society exists to disseminate information about the life and works of American author Hamlin Garland (1860-1940), whose best-known books are Main-Travelled Roads(1891) and A Son of the Middle Border (1917).


We would like to thank Keith Newlin for the work he did in creating and managing the old website and for his efforts to ensure that the Hamlin Garland Society website has a constant home.
