Ring Lardner and the Other

Oxford University Press

In the spring of 1933, Ring Lardner was hospitalized due to tuberculosis in New York. Ellis Lardner rented a hotel apartment on East 86th Street near Madison Avenue and visited her husband daily. His oldest son John was working for the Herald Tribune, and was residing at the Hotel Peter Stuyvesant at 86th Street and Central Park West. He worked 60-hour weeks but had Mondays off, and at noon every Monday would walk to his mother's apartment, eat a late breakfast with her, and then take a cab with her over to see his father. This story was told by Richard Tobin, Lardner's nephew (Anne's son), who was rooming with John and who worked for the Herald Tribune.
