The humorist and journalist Foster Ware (dates unknown) was a member of the Columbia University class of 1908. Ware joined the staff of the New York Evening Post soon after graduation and remained there for many years. He wrote articles for the New Yorker in the late 1920s.
A mention of Foster Ware in Christopher Morley's notebook, ca. 1921
Like Ware, Christopher Morley worked for New York Evening Post, where he composed the weekly literary column, "The Bowling Green." The two were friends and Ware's name appears as one of many in Morley's notebooks, filled with quotes, ideas, reminders, and other jottings. The Columbia University alumni report provides us with the fact that in early 1922, Ware took over the "Bowling Green" column at the Post when Morley was out of town.
