MacLeish Gives Reading of His Own Poetry Yesterday
Is Presented as First of Morris Gray Lecturers on Poetry
Archibald MacLeish, Curator of the Nieman Collection of Contemporary Journalism, gave a reading of his own poetry in Emerson D yesterday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock before an audience of over 100 people. His reading was the first of the three Morris Gray Poetry Fund speakers scheduled for this half year. Robert Frost and Carl Van Doren are scheduled to come.
MacLeish, on the Harvard staff this year for the first time, is the author of the Pulitzer Prize winning poem "Conquistador," and of "New Found Land," "Frescoes for Mr. Rockefeller's City," "Union Pacific,--a Ballet," "Panic," and the two radio plays "Fall of the City" and "Air Raid."
