Collection Description

Historical Note

Robert Frost was an American poet. Frost's family moved to New England early in his life. After stints at Dartmouth College and Harvard University and a difficult period as a teacher and farmer, he moved to England and published his first collections, A Boy's Will (1913) and North of Boston (1914). At the outbreak of war, he returned to New England. He closely observed rural life and in his poetry endowed it with universal, even metaphysical, meaning using colloquial language, familiar rhythms, and common symbols to express both its pastoral ideals and its dark complexities.

Scope and Content

The collection consists of miscellaneous Robert Frost items: one of 175 copies of An Old Man's Winter Night autographed by the poet; four Robert Frost commemorative postage stamps; two picture post cards; a University of Massachusetts Press catalog; one Library of Congress Information Bulletin, dated April 5, 1974, with a write-up of the Robert Frost Commemorative celebration.
