Others, particularly Howells and Henry Van Dyke, were horrified—Howells, in a letter that ‘‘almost scorched the paper it was written on,’’ actually asked Jordan not to publish Freeman’s contribution. Jordan’s own opinion of the chapter and the necessity of avoiding offense to any of Harper’s family of authors prohibited that: ‘‘I had to remember that, like Mr. Howells, Miss Wilkins was one of Harper’s most valued and successful authors. 3 In her perplexity Jordan turned to Henry Mills Alden, editor of Harper’s Monthly, for guidance and mediation.

An April  Bookman article titled ‘‘Some Recent Women Short Story Writers’’ suggests the female contributors’ standing. It mentions eight writers who established the tradition of female excellence in short story writing in America, among them Elizabeth Stuart Phelps and Alice Brown; discusses the work of eight writers, among them Edith Wyatt, Mary Stewart Cutting, and Mary Shipman Andrews; and mentions in conclusion eight more writers whose work was worthy of note, among them Mary Heaton Vorse and Elizabeth Jordan.

The recovery of women writers has also brought Elizabeth Stuart Phelps back into print and a certain amount of attention to Alice Brown. Vorse is remembered as a radical journalist and novelist, although not for the sort of fiction she contributed to The Whole Family. The rest of the contributors are virtually forgotten. However, when Jordan’s column asserts that The Whole Family ‘‘is a book of distinction, written by authors of distinction’’ (‘‘With the Editor’’ ), this is not—or rather not only—an example of her promotional hyperbole, but an accurate description of the status of the contributors.
