Lawry...........116 From the Editor: Here it is—with pride, excitement, and pleasure, we present this inaugural issue of The Henry James Review, an event long contemplated by your editor (who originally conceived the project as an undergraduate in 1968) and long awaited by students of James, but here at last, with whatever rough edges consequent on our having taken on ourselves for the first time every aspect of scholarly publication, from promotion and subscriptions through manuscript evaluation and copy editing to all the minutiae of magazine production. Now, with our first issue about to go to press, we look forward to a drop in the intensity of our editorial labors and to the opportunity to join our readers in a leisurely perusal of the finished product. And yet it must be said at the outset that the word product will, we hope, come to be seen as a misnomer, for in seeking to fulfill the important, manifold missions of a learned journal , we want the HJR to be not a thing, an artifact, a product, or a mere repository of writings on James, but a center of activity, a catalyst for a continuous process of reviewing knowledge about James, and a stimulator of dialogue and research. The IiJR is designed to be a vital expression of the Henry James Society, of which it is the official organ. Here then, for our readers' information, is a draft of the key section in the Articles of Incorporation that will be filed for the Henry James Society after consultation among the members attending its first meeting in San Francisco next month: ARTICLE V PURPOSES OF CORPORATION This corporation (hereinafter called "the Society") is organized and formed to foster communication among persons interested in the American novelist Henry James (1843-1916), to provide forums for assessing, developing, evaluating, and reviewing knowledge about James, and, generally, to stimulate research and dialogue on his life and work, within the scope of the specifically listed purposes in Section 501 (c) (3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1954 including , but not by way of limitation, to publish The Henry James Review (hereinafter called "the HJR"), to arrange for the reading of scholarly papers on James at the annual meeting of the Society and at special sessions of professional meetings such as the annual convention of the Modern Language Association , and to sponsor the publication of monographs on James and of definitive scholarly editions of his works. The HJR, the official organ of the Society, is organized and published to further the purposes of the Society as stated above by fulfilling the historically important mission of a learned journal: to record, assess, evaluate, and review research on James and to stimulate research and dialogue about him. In pursuit of these objectives, we pledge to treat all approaches to James studies honestly and fairly; to establish and maintain rigorous editorial standards, never publishing mediocre material merely because it is about Henry James; to strive always to play a constructive tutorial role for authors whose submissions are not accepted for publication; and, above all, to...
