    founded the Pelman Institute 
    • Founder of the Pelman Institute and subsequently visited and organised branches in India, Australia, S Africa, Canada, France and America. Added the new word Pelmanism to the English language.

      Extract from pdf file found on Harvard University Press website (see sources).

      The early correspondence schools of writing bore signs of the
      heritage of self-improvement schemes with which correspondence
      courses had been associated. Courses in the short story appeared
      alongside courses in 'Mental Training' and 'Mental Culture' at
      what would become the longest-running such school, which was
      founded in 1909 by T. P. O'Connor as the London Correspondence
      College.20 W. J. Ennever, who took over from O’Connor,
      remained involved in the Pelman Institute, which taught an eponymous
      system of 'memory training' by correspondence.21 Despite
      Ennever’s links with Pelmanism, the courses on mental
      training were allowed to lapse after O'Connor gave up the college,
      and the school focused on the teaching of writing. Ennever
      remained the majority shareholder, though he moved to the
      United States on Pelman business.22
      Ennever went west to promote the British system of
      Pelmanism to Americans, but the Pelman Institute’s correspondence
      education was itself modeled on American practice. Correspondence
      courses were an American invention that quickly became
      popular in Britain. The United States was also the capital of
      writing instruction, both by correspondence and through textbooks
      and magazines.

      When Ennever moved to America, he left the running of the
      London Correspondence College to the new minority shareholder,
      the novelist Max Pemberton.25 It was renamed the London
      School of Journalism, and under Pemberton it prospered and
      became the least distrusted institution of its kind.26 After graduating
      from Cambridge with no profession in mind, Pemberton did
      some freelance journalism in the 1880s. This experience convinced
      him that there was a living to be had in catering to “the
      reading tastes of the masses.” He secured the editorship of the
      boys’ paper Chums, then Cassell’s Magazine, a competitor of the
      24 TO EXERCISE OUR TALENTS
      Strand, and then moved into writing unabashedly derivative
      novels—initially imitations of Robert Louis Stevenson and Rider
      Haggard. His work sold but did not give him the security he
      wanted. Like many later writers, Pemberton sought to capitalize
      on his measure of literary success by going into the literary advice
      business.27
      To this end he sought the help of the press magnate Lord
      Northcliffe. The two men were old friends, and were on 'Max'
      and 'Alf' terms, though Pemberton sometimes, like others
      around the great man, called Northcliffe 'Chief.' Pemberton
      had played sidekick to the rising Alfred Harmsworth and became
      a long-term client of his. From the correspondence that remains
      it is not clear whether Northcliffe lent Pemberton the money he
      asked for as he moved into the writing-school business, but he at
      least handled the negotiations with Ennever and his deputy Neil
      MacLaren that were needed to set Pemberton up at the college.
      Pemberton was installed with a one-third stake in it and a salary of
      £1000 a year, a figure that testifies to the commercial viability of
      instruction in writing (an annual income of £250 was often cited
      as the threshold of the middle class, and a doctor or solicitor earning
      £1000 would have been doing substantially better than the
      average for their professions). Northcliffe drew the line at being
      identified in the college’s promotional material as its sovereign
      patron, though he was happy to be one of a number of people
      designated as patrons. The college’s letterhead accordingly listed
      him as just one member of a pantheon of patrons. After he died,
      the letterhead was changed to read: “Founded under the direct
      patronage of the late Viscount NORTHCLIFFE.”28
