    Is that a ’16?

    That poem got published in 1919 as is attributed to J. P. McEvoy in the 1919 publishing.

    It showed up in an ad, of all places, in 1926 in the Ohio State University Lantern and was attributed to “anonymous”. (Life before the internet was a wasteland.)

    The earliest I could find was it got published in 1916 in Canadian Golfer Magazine (warning: PDF) and while I’m tempted to make jokes about the exchange differential between Canadian and American Golf, I’m instead noticing that they attribute the poem to… The Chicago Herald.Report
