Manuscripts/Mixed Material [Frederick Savage]
There is nothing wishy-washy about Mr. Savage. He says what he thinks and says it with decision. There is no reluctance or fear on his part of expressing opinions and giving advice. He knows all the answers and doesn't mind telling you so. His favorite theme is the “good old days” which he thinks had it all over the present when life is lived too fast and in too much of a muddle.
Notwithstanding his decisive manner Mr. Savage is extremely personable. As a raconteur he has few rivals for his fund of anecdotes seem inexhaustible and his manner of telling the tales fascinating. He is a great letter writer and numbers among his correspondents some distinguished and well-known people. He is very friendly, and eager to make you at home. There is little difficulty in interviewing him for he just talks and talks and talks
