Dorothy Van Doren
“It is often said that the days of the great letter writers are over. The typewriter has done away with the pen; a machine age, which was to have provided leisure, demands more hours in service to it than did the time of hand crafts and long working days. The motion picture, the radio, the motor car, the washing machine are jealous masters. We telegraph now instead of writing letters, and when we neglect to telegraph there is always the long distance telephone.”
Dorothy Van Doren, U.S. novelist
(1896 - 1983)
Full name: Dorothy Graffe Van Doren.
