100 years ago today Zelda Fitzgerald gave birth to her and her husband's only child, the inimitable Scottie Fitzgerald. Sadly, she passed away in 1986, but it was thanks to her that we have the great resources at Princeton we do for Fitzgerald research. Scottie herself was a talented author and a political kingmaker at different points in her life. She also tried to save the Pleasant Avenue home in Montgomery where her mother grew up in the 1970s. Happy centennial! ...

PS: If you haven't read SCOTTIE: The Daughter of... by Eleanor Lanahan, one of Scottie's children (and a great supporter of the Fitzgerald Society), we highly recommend it!

I met her but once, in 1980—

Just a quick reminder that Friday, Sept 24 is F Scott Fitzgerald's 125th birthday! To celebrate, why not tune into the Fitzgerald Literary Conference's virtual screening of The Great Gatsby in Connecticut: The Untold Story, Robert Steven Williams's wonderful exploration of Scott and Zelda's connection to Westport, featuring the always ebullient Richard "Deej" Webb and our very own Walter Raubicheck. It's a blast. Here's the link: mcpl.libnet.info/event/5493570 ...

Happy 100th birthday to The Beautiful and Damned, which began its serial run in Metropolitan Magazine's September 1921 issue. The $7000 Fitzgerald earned in 1921 is the equivalent of $100k today. Of course, that means the 25 cents it cost to purchase this issue a century ago would run you $38 today. You can waste your life scouring the Internetz for the seven issues in which the novel appeared... issues from 1919 on, when Metropolitan ran into severe money troubles and cut back on print runs, are extremely rare to come across on Ebay and other sites. Hopefully one day we can get a complete run of the issues scanned and post for free for scholars. ...
