In Search of a Princess and her Prince
Woster, Emily S. “In Search Of A Princess And Her Prince: How I Inadvertently Found Herman Leard”. The Shining Scroll (2008): 2-3. Print.
In the Spring of 1898 Lucy Maud Montgomery encountered Herman Leard. In a series of passionate journal entries, and one black and white picture clipped from a magazine, LMM described one of the most dramatic and intriguing episodes of her life. To many, the picture that was said to look “as much like Herman as a photograph” became evidence of Montgomery’s tendency to memorialize her own life and her adherence to deep convictions about duty and love. Maud left no bibliographic evidence about this picture, but when packing my apartment for a move to Illinois State University I stumbled across evidence of the picture’s beginnings., Source type: Print(0)
