McCain, Sinclair Lewis, William Faulkner, Vachal Lindsay, Edgar Lee Masters, Countee Cullen, James Weldon Johnson, Margaret Mead, Lewis Mumford, Louis Untermeyer and many others. Each issue also included Mencken's biting editorials. As Mencken stated, "The editors are committed to nothing save this: to keep to common sense as fast as they can, to belabor sham as agreeably as possible, to give a civilized entertainment." Includes the famous "Hatrack" issue, April1926, for which Mencken was arrested in Boston, and the US Post Office refused to deliver.
