i have come across a whole bunch of authors who have died in 1946, and i thought it would be interesting for those of us who need to consider authors' death dates to collect those authors who will enter the public domain in january :)

wikipedia has a short list:
Helen Bannerman
Otis Adelbert Kline
Damon Runyon
Frona Eunice Wait
H. G. Wells

id like to add constance garnett, the prolific translator from russian to english. anything else you guys came across?

Looking at the Deaths sections of Wikipedia's 1946 page, people listed there as 'author', 'writer' or 'poet' include:
  • Dion Fortune
  • Gerhart Hauptmann
  • Orrick Glenday Johns
  • Edward Sperling
  • Gertrude Stein
  • Wanda Gág
  • Ray Stannard Baker
  • Countee Cullen

EDIT: I was curious as to what we already have from these authors:
Helen Bannerman - 6 recordings of three poems
Otis Adelbert Kline - Nothing, as most of his books are not PD in America. Some for Legamus, methinks!
Damon Runyon - Same as above
Frona Eunice Wait - Nothing
H. G. Wells - Predictably, lots
Constance Garnett - Quite a bit
Dion Fortune - Another with little in the American PD
Gerhart Hauptmann - One book in progress
Orrick Glenday Johns - Nothing
Edward Sperling - Nothing
Gertrude Stein - A couple of things
Wanda Gág - Another with little in the American PD
Ray Stannard Baker - A couple of things
Countee Cullen- Another with little in the American PD

So yeah... most of these people have not written much that can be recorded here anyway...

Dion Fortune's "Machinery of the mind" is on archive.org under her own name, Violet Firth (published in 1922): https://archive.org/details/machineryofmind00firt

If they died in 1946 then any of their works can be recorded on legumus.eu. Books will still need to have been published pre 1923 to be recorded here.

But I, being in Australia, can't legally record the post-1922 Banjo Paterson corpus at Legumus, correct?

Well, there's only one thing for it. Carolin, how is your Australian accent?

He died 1941 - so it's all PD in Australia and most countries except the USA . So you can record it all - LV just can't host it under current rules unti Jan 1st 1941+95+1 , only a few years away :D

So Nine Miles From Gundagai is legal there?

Nine Miles From Gundagai
Jack Moses (1860-1945)

I've done my share of shearing sheep,
Of droving and all that,
And bogged a bullock team as well,
On a Murrumbidgee flat.
I've seen the bullock stretch and strain,
And blink his bleary eye,
And the dog sits on the tucker box
Nine miles from Gundagai.

I've been jilted, jarred and crossed in love,
And sand-bagged in the dark,
Till if a mountain fell on me,
I'd treat it as a lark.
It's when you've got your bullocks bogged
That's the time you flog and cry,
And the dog sits on the tucker box,
Nine miles from Gundagai.

We've all got our little troubles,
In life's hard, thorny way.
Some strike them in a motor car
And others in a dray.
But when your dog and bullocks strike
It ain't no apple pie,
And the dog sat on the tucker box
Nine miles from Gundagai.

But that's all past and dead and gone,
And I've sold the team for meat,
And perhaps some day where I was bogged,
There'll be an asphalt street,
The dog, ah! well he got a bait,
And thought he'd like to die,
So I buried him in the tucker box,
Nine miles from Gundagai.

The North Queensland Register, 14 January 1924, p16
