The Magazines, Travel and Middlebrow Culture in Canada 1925-1960 project at the University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow, Scotland, now has their very attractive website up and running. Their mandate overlaps with ours somewhat, so some of our authors will be represented in their pages. Most notably at the moment is their discovery of two poems by Dorothy Livesay published in the pages of Chatelaine. The first, “Dimity in Town,” was published in the first volume of Chatelaine, in March 1928; the second, “Secret,” was published later that year, in May 1928.
