Papers of Witter Bynner, 1913-1918.

The collection contains a poem, "To the Mountain," n.d.; and a newsletter of the Poetry Society of America, 1918, noting among other items, a reading by Bynner, activities of Edna St. Vincent Millay, World War I service of Raymond Weeks, William Aspenwall Bradley, Burton Egbert Stevenson, Curtis Wheeler, and Joyce Kilmer, and a hoax perpretrated by Bynner and Arthur Davidson Ficke. In letters to Grace Walcott Hazard Conkling he compliments her on a poem and offers publishing advice noting that the firm of Small, Maynard & Company publishes only Ezra Pound, Madison Cawein and himself and suggesting she send her verse to Mitchell Kennerly. Letters to a Mr. and Mrs. Carruth discuss meeting with Stanford undergraduates and announce a poetry prize for undergraduates. Letters to Christian Herter concern submissions to the "Independent."
