This chapter focuses on Marie Manning of the New York Journal, Olivia Dunbar of the New York World, and Neith Boyce of the New York Commercial Advertiser, who all lived at the Judson Hotel on Washington Square in Greenwich Village. At the time, the Judson attracted a variety of writers and would-be writers—from poets to playwrights to newspaper men and women. “We became chums,” Boyce later remembered of her friendship with the two “other newspaper girls”: Dunbar “was the delicate New England type, the most lady-like, reserved and shrinking, exquisite person.” Manning, on the other hand, “was a big robust and gay Rabelaisian creature, full of color and laughter telling the funniest stories, amused at herself and her business.” The three women “used to get together in the evenings and among other things talk over their respective papers,” Boyce recalled.
