Face in the Crowd

Because of his work as an educator, William Howard Day was honored by the City of Harrisburg with a school building named after him: the William Howard Day School, that was located on the south side of North Street, just east of Fifth Street. Subsequent to his death in 1900, nearly 40 years would pass before the city so honored him in two more ways: the William Howard Day homes, a public-housing community located at Reilly Road and Herr Street; and the William Howard Day Cemetery, located at 801 Lincoln Street in Steelton.

If you are at all familiar with the history of the contemporary American short story, you will be well-acquainted with names like Raymond Carver, Tobias Wolff and Richard Ford. Sometimes described as “dirty realists,” their terse, often bleak stories focus on the difficult lives of the residents of shabby apartments and trailer parks, people employed at tedious, low-paying jobs, if they’re employed at all. Lucia Berlin, who died in 2004, mined that same territory for her gritty stories, but her work, published mostly in limited-circulation literary magazines during her lifetime, was appreciated by only a small fraction of the audience of her better-known male contemporaries.
