When the Irish Players opened their American tour in 1911 with a performance of John Millington Synge's play "The playboy of the western world," they were booed, hissed, and pelted with potatoes by some members of the audience. "The present volume (which was never published, by the way, and consists only of proof sheets) was a result of the 'affaire.' Roosevelt, then editing The Outlook, wrote his 'Note' to preface an article by John Quinn ["Lady Gregory and the Abbey Theater"] and a play by Lady Gregory ["MacDaragh's wife"]. Quinn later asked Roosevelt for permission to reprint the 'Note' and appended it to the amusing interview with George Bernard Shaw. Then Quinn turned the whole thing over to his friend Mitchell Kennerley, the publisher, who had these proof sheets prepared. Before the book could be published, objections were raised, and the piece was abandoned"--University of Michigan. The President's Report to the Board of Regents for the Academic Years 1951-1952 (Ann Arbor, Michigan: Published by the University, [1952?]), page 296
