     Miscellaneous Payment


Beginning with the Spring 2014 issue, the Mark Twain Journal commenced a new feature, "Legacy Scholars," designed to summarize the achievements of those who have made a long-term impact on the field of Mark Twain studies.

This recognition is intended as a token of debt that a great many of us owe to these scholars and their innovative publications.
