The third visiting poet will be Mark Van Doren who is speaking sometime in December, or January; the specific dates for Frost and Van Doren have not yet been established. Van Doren is the brother of Carl Van Doren, the literary critic of the New York Herald-Tribune.

The Lectures on Modern Poetry are provided by a gift of $10,000 to the University in 1920 by Morris Gray '06, Gray specified that the income was to be applied to the giving of occasional talks or lectures on modern poetry.
