Robert Quillen

Quillen's Monument to Eve, 1925 "Last week the obelisk was erected in my yard, and I had the complacent feeling of one who has done his duty well. But one never knows. My neighbors stared at the marble with incredulous horror; they prophesied plagues upon me; they accused me of an unbecoming levity toward things that are sacred; they glared at the marble by day and scurried by with many a backward glance at night." Moore, 8. Verni Robert Quillen (March 25, 1887 – December 9, 1948) was an American journalist and humorist who for more than a quarter century was "one of the leading purveyors of village nostalgia" from his home in Fountain Inn, South Carolina. In 2012, his office and library was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
