He Knew Him When . . .

February 09, 1986

"Parting Word": James Thurber, 1872-1970 (Book Review, Jan. 19.).

The Jim Thurber I used to know summers during the mid-late '30s at Martha's Vineyard was no 60-plus fellow. I thought at that time, say, 40-ish.

Perhaps not the "Parting Word," but the "Last Word(s)" should be "James Thurber, 1894-1961."

As they used to say about the midget that Bill Veeck sent in as a pinch hitter, "you could look it up."
