Historical Note

Eleanor Hammond (1890-1950), Oregon poet and author, was born in Oakland, California. She contributed her work to various publications including Child Life, Play Mate, American Mercury, Junior World and the Oregonian.

They repeatedly signed up for a creative writing course taught by Mabel Holmes Parsons as a university extension course through the University of Oregon, and used this as a forum for comment and criticism. The group included Borghild (Peggy) Lee, Ethel Romig Fuller and Queene Lister Ryan.
