Robert L. Beisner

Robert L. Beisner, associate professor of history at American University, is the author of Twelve Against Empire (McGraw-Hill, 1968), the story of the anti-imperialists of 1898-1900. A portion of it appeared in the August, 1967, issue of AMERICAN HERITAGE .
When this article was shown to Elbert Hubbard II, shortly before he died last November, the Fra ‘s son asked that we run the following comment, which we gladly do: “I have read AMERICAN HERITAGE ‘s article about my father and can only say, as he did, ‘Every knock is a boost.’ After all, it won’t be the first critical article about him and it certainly won’t be the last article about him—critical or complimentary!”
