The manuscript of ‘My Recollection of Chicago’ (13 leaves) is undated. There are internal references to ‘43 years ago’ and Gordon j. Laing's resignation from the university. This would date the manuscript as 1942 or 1943, the latter being the date of Laing's retirement.... His autobiography was left unfinished; the completed chapters were published posthumously under the title The Boy I Left Behind Me (1946). 'My Recollection of Chicago' was no doubt written by Leacock when he started his autobiography. He probably intended to include it as a chapter. [Suggest a different description.]
