Of note

  • Holt was actively involved in the Simplified Spelling movement as a long-time member (and sometime president) of the Simplified Spelling Board (1906-1920), an effort that drew initial support from the likes of Theodore Roosevelt and Dale Carnegie, but ultimately floundered from lack of wide-scale adoption.
