Isaacson, Charles D[avid]
   (1891–1936)
   Amateur journalist who edited In a Minor Key,the first issue of which (undated, but published in early 1915) advocated pacifism, condemned prejudice against African Americans and Jews, and praised Walt Whitman; HPL responded with a hostile attack, “In a Major Key” ( Conservative,July 1915). Isaacson shot back with “Concerning the Conservative” ( In a Minor KeyNo. 2 [1915]), as did James F.Morton in another article in the same issue. HPL promised to write a devastating rebuttal, but aside from a poetical squib, “Gems from ‘In a Minor Key’” ( Conservative,October 1915), he published nothing; later in the year he wrote a long satirical poem, “The Isaacsonio-Mortoniad,” attacking both Isaacson and Morton, but did not publish it. Isaacson visited HPL briefly when passing through Providence on July 1, 1916. He later wrote several books on music: Face to Face with Great Musicians (1918–21; 2 vols.) and The Simple Story of Music (1928).
