Who is Bly the Rice Writer?
Bly the Rice Writer: Ernest L. Blystone was known as “Bly the Rice Writer.” He was famous in the 1930s in Ardara, a small western Pennsylvania hamlet hidden in a fold of the rolling hills between Trafford and Irwin. On 2 June 1933, the local paper ran an 11-line story on Blystone leaving for the Chicago World's Fair. It read: “Bly the Penman, one of Ardara's most noted residents, left last week for the world's fair at Chicago, where he will demonstrate his fine writing ability during the entire time the fair is in operation. Following the close of the fair in October, Blystone will go on a six-month tour, having signed a year's contract with Ripley, famous cartooner of Believe It Or Not, who has featured Bly a number of times.
