Mildred Schemm[edit]

Mildred was a long time resident of Grafton, Vermont and did much of her writing there. Amongst her 17 published books were: Winter Wheat....need more

Mrs. Schemm published 12 adult novels and one novel for young readers. Ten of the books were published between 1933 and 1955. (The 11th is entitled The Body of a Young Man.) Currently, all her fiction is being reprinted by Bison Books, the paperback imprint of the University of Nebraska Press, with new introductions by contemporary authors.

She was born in Philadelphia in 1905 and graduated magna cum laude in literature from Wells College in 1926. She married cardiologist Ferdinand Schemm in 1927. They lived in Michigan where she earned her master of arts degree in English in 1933. Her first novel, Fireweed, received the Hopwood Award from the University of Michigan - one of the most influential academic literary awards of that era.

The Schemms moved to Great Falls, Montana, in 1933. Four of her novels are set in that state: Unless the Wind Turns, Winter Wheat, The Curlew’s Cry, and If A Lion Could Talk.

Following the death of her husband, Mrs. Schemm returned to Wells in 1955 as a professor of English. In 1961-62 she was a Fulbright lecturer in Koyoto, Japan, and traveled to Sicily for a sabbatical in 1964. She also taught at the Breadloaf Writers Conference in Vermont. Her work The Southwest Corner inspired a play and television show.

She retired from Wells in 1968 and went to live at her family home in Grafton, Vermont. She moved to Missoula, Montana, in 1986 and then to Portland, Oregon, in 1990 where she died in 1998 at the age of 93. Wells edu wnnwar24.htm

Grafton[edit]

If you want me to read a note, please leave it at the end of my talk page: if you leave a new note near the top of the page, I might not realise it at all. And please don't un-archive my talk page as you did.

As to Turner etc.: I don't always have time to examine all the people listed in every community; I watch every Vermont community, as well as almost every community in a dozen other states, so I don't always notice if there's someone who doesn't have an article if it's a blue link.

Regarding Alex Turner: we include (slave) because there are multiple Alex Turners, and listing by one's occupation (or onetime status, in this case) is the normal way to disambiguate such names. Because (slave) isn't at all a part of the guy's name, there's no reason for it to exist. Let me ask: why does he need to be listed in her entry at all? I didn't have time to look into it, but it's quite an abnormal thing to list people's relatives in a notable natives section unless the other person is someone quite famous, which I would guess Turner really isn't.

What is notability? Gavrilo Princip was, by all accounts, never more than a rejected, puny, weak teenager who couldn't shoot straight at a range of over 2 meters. But he is very notable.Hmose (talk) 10:15, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

additional material from Moseley article[edit]

Rendezvous With Destiny - A History of the 101st Airborne Division, Rapport and Northwood, Copyright 1948 101st Airborne Association Library of Congress number 48-8026

D-Day With the Screaming Eagles, George Koskimaki, Copyright 1970 George Koskimaki, ISBN 1-932033-02-5

I have extracted some of the account in the Koskimaki book. I recommend you use it to enlarge the Wiki narrative.

"Chapter 11 The original parachute regiment of the 101st Airborne Division was the 502nd or "Five-O-deuce" It had been commanded since its organization by Colonel George Van Horn, "Ole Moe" Mosley. The four D day assignments for the 502nd were the destruction of the four-gun coastal battery at St. Martin - de Varreville, the capture of "WXYZ" - the artillery personnel's barracks complex of the Germans at mesieres, the setting of lstorn roadblocks to the north near Foucarvillle to prent German reinforcement from moving to the beach area ,and the seizure of the upper two causeways (Exits 3 and 4) to enable the 4th Infantry Division to move inland toward Cherbourg.

Colonel Mosley jumped with the 2nd battalions of the 502nd. The 2nd Battalion had been even the specific assignment of destroying the coastal battery. With Mosley was Lt. Colonel Benjamin Weisberg, commanding officer of the 377aath Parachute File Artillery Battalion, which was assigned the task of proving artillery support for the 502d in storming the coastal battery. Weisberg way to coordinate his artillery fire with the 502nd's infantry attack.

There had been the usual flak and anti-aircraft fire sustained b the men as they dropped. Landing produced injuries among many. On of them was colonel Moseley himself , who broke his leg on the jump. He lay for a short time in the feels where hel landed.

Private John Zaika, of the 2d Battalion, a young farmer from White Pigeon, Michigan, dropped nearby. He remembered, " Eight or ten men assemble near the spot where I landed. We were in the middle of a field where our regimental commander Colonel Mosley lay with a broken leg. I left to south the area for a horse , but they were scared and I could catch one so I came back to the same spot an only Colonel Moseley lay there. I tale him I wasn't able to get a horse fro him and that he shouldn't lie there in the open., so I decided to carry him on my back to admit where we hid until he tale me to scout around and fin members of his regimental command group. This id did . I found three or four o them but when I when I went up to one of these mint and asked if he way from regimental Headquarter, he threw a hand grenade at me and we both ran off in different directions. I spend the entire night trying to find someone friendly to whom I might attach myself. As the night wore on, more and more mint of Regimental Headquarters congregated, Colonel Mosley was able to receive medical attention.

Later Colonel Mosley is mentioned again.

As the day progressed, Colonel Mosley was brought to the aid station at Hiesville. Sergeant "Sky" Jackson related, I saw Colonel Mosley in a wheelbarrow. He was in great Pain (I saw the bone sticking out of his leg). He was still the same aggressive leader, barking out order as he had when I knew him training before D-Day. He had refused to be evacuated, but I heard General Taylor, who had also arrived there, give a direct order that he was to be evacuated and Colonel John Michaelis was to take over".

Hmose, I'm sure this is accidental, but for some reason some of your recent edits have added your username to articles; take a look at the revision histories of Camille Paglia and Bennington College. Skoojal (talk) 00:12, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
