The Hemingway Review --in its current form--was founded by Charles M. "Tod" Oliver in 1981 to serve as the publication for the newly founded Hemingway Society (1980).  However, The Review began initially as Oliver's attempt to revive Hemingway notes which was published by Ken Rosen at Dickinson College and Taylor Alderman at Youngstown State University from 1971 to 1974.  Oliver published his version of Hemingway notes from 1979 until the first issue of The Hemingway Review in 1981.
