Biographical Note

American journalist, editor, and author Horace Traubel (1858–1919) was best known for his multi-volume With Walt Whitman in Camden: A Diary, a detailed account of his close association with the famous poet between March of 1888 and January of 1889. A friend of Whitman's from 1873 until the poet's death, he became one of Whitman's literary executors and subsequently an editor of In Re Walt Whitman (1893) and the ten-volume Complete Writings of Walt Whitman (1902). In 1890 Traubel founded and edited a monthly magazine, The Conservator, which promoted Marxian socialism and reflected Whitman's substantial influence. From 1903 to 1907 he served as editor of the Artsman, a publication of the Rose Valley Movement, a communal enterprise located southwest of Philadelphia. Traubel also wrote prose verse and published two volumes, Chants Communal (1904) and Optimos (1910). Horace Traubel died on September 08, 1919, in Bon Echo, Ontario, Canada.
