The Lloyd McKim Garrison prize has been awarded to James Gordon Gilkey '12, of Watertown, for his poem entitled "Boston as Seen from Harvard Bridge". The prize consisting of a silver medal and $100 was instituted by members of the class of 1888 in memory of their classmate, Lloyd McKim Garrison, who had shown marked poetic ability while in College. The competition is open only to undergraduates.
The twenty-one poems submitted this year were judged by a committee of the English Department consisting of Dean L. B. R. Briggs, Professor Bliss Perry and Professor G. P. Baker. The Garrison Prize was won last year by the poem written by H. T. Pulsifer '11, entitled "The Conquest of the Air".
