The Tortured Life of Scofield Thayer

University Press of Florida

This chapter focuses on the ongoing feud between Thayer and Albert C. Barnes regarding articles on art aesthetics published in The Dial. Barnes first demands that a certain art critic be given the prestigious Dial Award—a demand Thayer rejects. Barnes next has his tutor write a response to an article on art that appeared in The Dial, but demands that the magazine not carry a response to it. Once again, Thayer ignores Barnes’ demand. The conflict soon escalates, and Barnes threatens to expose Thayer as a “pervert” and to assault him if he doesn't give in.

Keywords:   Albert C. Barnes, Thomas Craven
