Biography

Raymond Macdonald Alden (1873 - 1924)


1908 Why the Chimes Rang


Charles Madison Curry and Erle Elsworth Clippinger in their Children's Literature (1920, 1921) give the following introduction to an excerpt from Why the Chimes Rang:


Two stories of unusual interest and charm for children are found in the collection of eleven by Raymond M. Alden (1873-), Why the Chimes Rang. One is the title story of the volume; the other is "The Knights of the Silver Shield." The latter follows by permission of the publishers, The Bobbs-Merrill Co., Indianapolis. (Copyright, 1906, 1908.) It is of striking dramatic interest and emphasizes a much-needed quality of character, the importance of a loyal performance of the lowlier duties of life. The salvation of a nation may depend upon the humble guardian of the gate quite as much as upon those who are engaged in the more spectacular struggle with giants. Mr. Alden is a scholarly professor of literature in Leland Stanford Jr. University, and it may interest the reader to know that he is the son of the author of Pansy Books, a type of religious of Sunday-school fiction widely read throughout the country by a generation or two of young people.
