Charles Bertrand Lewis [1842-1924] was a journalist who sometimes wrote under the pen name M. Quad. He was a student at Michigan Agricultural College, an apprentice to a country printer and a soldier in the civil war. He was severely injured in a steamboat accident and after his recovery wrote an article about it entitled "How It Feels to Be Blown Up" which he signed M. Quad. He took a position with the Detroit Free Press where he was given the humor column; but he also wrote editorials, market reports and political sketches. Among the successes which established him as a humorist may be listed POLICE COURT SCENES, begun in 1876; THE LIME-KILN CLUB and TALKS WITH BOYS, begun in 1885. When he joined the Free Press, it had a circulation of 5,000 copies weekly, which increased to more than a quarter million during his tenure. [CYCLOPEDIA OF AMERICAN BIOGRAPHY] BROTHER GARDNER'S LIME-KILN CLUB purports to be the proceedings of a {fictitious?] African-American club. Bookseller Inventory # 006358
