Hobby of Writing Short Stories Pays Large Dividends
Fortuny's Publishers of New York announced Monday that a new collection of short stories "Fighting Youth" as written by Lem Chisholm,of Longview, formerly of Rockwall, has been accepted for publication. Chisholm, a clerk at the local post office since 1931, estimates that he has written 100,000 words since he took up writing as a hobby three years ago.
Born in Rockwall County, he was graduated from Rockwall High School and attended a business college in Tyler. Before coming to Rockwall, he was assistant cashier at a Rockwall bank. Chisholm also has an interesting war record. First an enlisted private and then a corporal, he was sent oversease as an army field clerk with the 44th division. Headquarters were in Mont Faucon, France and later at Mersch in Luxembourg. After the Armistice was signed, he was transferred with the Third Army of Occupation and was one of the first Americans to enter Coblentz on Dec 15, 1918. He remained there five and a half months.
