SHERWOOD ANDERSON IN VIRGINIA
1925-1941
by Don Francis

In January, 1929, Elizabeth went to California to visit relatives. Sherwood wrote to her, asking her not to return to Virginia. The marriage came to an end, and Sherwood continued to get the papers out. His older son, Robert Lane Anderson, came to work with him at the papers, and gradually took over most of the duties of editor and publisher. Sherwood transferred the papers to Robert Lane legally in January, 1932.
