Ingersoll Admirer

I have been a charter subscriber to American Heritage, and I particularly want to compliment you on the February/ March 1985 issue. An article that deserves special praise, in my opinion, is “Robert Ingersoll: The Illustrious Infidel” by Lynne Vincent Cheney. The story is superbly written, and the author merits our praise and appreciation. It is interesting to note that, although many people today are unfamiliar with this once famous American, his work has not been forgotten. His birthday is now being celebrated annually in Peoria, Illinois, his writings are again available on the market, and he has been portrayed on the stage by Roger E. Greeley in a fine performance entitled “An Evening with lngersoll.”
