"...the little magazine is a powerful force in the encouragement and promotion of American literature....As a result of its long life and the breadth of its editorial policy, the Schooner has encountered more currents in American literature and a wider variety of social, political, and economic conditions than have magazines of shorter duration or more specific direction."

-Paul R. Stewart
The Prairie Schooner Story (1955)

"The Schooner is like an old friend dropping in."

-Mari Sandoz
27 March 1947
