American poet and literary scholar William Ellery Leonard (1876-1944) taught English at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Edna Davis Romig (b. 1889) was a professor of English for 36 years, most of them spent at the University of Colorado at Boulder. She published several volumes of poetry and a book on Walt Whitman. Friends with Robert and Elinor Frost, Romig was asked by the couple to write their biography, a project that was researched but never completed. She retired from teaching in 1961 and moved to Estes Park, Colorado.
