- "Arnold Haultain, author of "The Mystery of Golf," published recently by Houghton Mifflin Company, was born in India, and is a son of the late Major-General Haultain, of the British army. Mr. Haultain was educated in England, and going to Canada while still young, took his degree at the University of Toronto. His first publication was a little critique of Cardinal Newman's theory of the Illative Sense as expounded in that famous prelate's "Grammar of Assent."
- Since then Mr. Haultain has contributed to the Nineteenth Century, Blackwood's Magazine, the Westminster Review, the Monthly Review, Literature (published by the London Times), Nature, and many other first-class periodicals. Two or three of his English articles have been copied into American magazines, notably "How to Read" (from Blackwood's Magazine), in Littell's Living Age, and his "Mayfair and the Nurses" (also from Blackwood's), in the Eclectic.
- His first original contribution to American magazines was a long essay on "Walks and Walking Tours," printed in the Atlantic for October, 1903. In July, 1904 the Atlantic published a second essay, "The Mystery of Golf." This article was Mr. Haultain's second essay on the subject of golf, his first paper having appeared in the Contemporary Review for August, 1902, from which magazine it was copied in full in Littell's Living Age for the following month. Morang & Co., of Toronto, published an octavo illustrated volume by Mr, Haultain, entitled "Two Country Walks in Canada” "
