Papers of John Hall Wheelock [manuscript], 1925, 1968.

The papers contain a manuscript poem "The gardener." In a letter, 1968 January 21, New York, to Melvin Rosenthal, a member of the Fifth Avenue Vietnam Peace Parade Committee, New York, Wheelock apologizes for overlooking an earlier communication; discusses his age and caring for his wife after a recent fall in which she fractured her thighbone; mentions reading in the Poets for Peace program; refuses to let his name be used to sponsor activities for peace in Vietnam; shows his goodwill by including for sale at a literary auction the first draft of "The gardener," which won the Bollingen Prize, explains that the signature and an autograph note were added to the manuscript for an exhibition of his work when he was elected to the Academy of Arts and Letters. In another letter, 1925 June 22, New York, to [Will Orton Tewson] the editor of "The Literary Review," Wheelock refuses to answer the question which line in English poetry is most beautiful.
