In 1983, almost thirty years ago, the Hemingway Society chose Michigan as a venue for its first conference. Here Professor Emeritus Joseph J. Waldmeir, chairman of that conference, offers some memories, and presents its two never-before-published keynote speeches: "Some Post-Fishing Thoughts on Hemingway and Writing" by John Voelker (author of Anatomy of a Murder, published under the pen name Robert Traver) and "Hemingway: The 45th Parallel—Two Bars" by Jim Harrison. Both novelists talk about the role played by Michigan, and Hemingway, in their own lives and work.
