William Dana Orcutt, ‘Celebrities Off Parade: George Bernard Shaw’, Christian Science Monitor, 28 June 1934. William Dana Orcutt (1870–1953), book designer and author, was associated with the University Press, Cambridge, Mass., when in 1903 he was offered the chance of setting Man and Superman in type to secure the American copyright. (The requisite copy was deposited on 12 August 1903 but the book was not issued commercially in America — by Brentano — until June 1904.) In the following article he drew extensively on a letter from Shaw dated 28 August 1903, given in full in his book Celebrities Off Parade (1935), and reprinted in Shaw, Collected Letters 1898–1910, pp. 352–5.
