The Dartmouth College Library's Robert Frost Collection contains tens of thousands of letters to and from the poet. This exhibit looks at conversations among Frost and his correspondents -- his friends the literary scholars Sidney Cox and Cornelius Weygandt, poet and modernist impresario Ezra Pound, and President John F. Kennedy. The letters span two continents and fifty years of Frost's life -- from 1913, when he began publishing poetry in London, to 1963, just before his death in his beloved New England. The exhibit was curated by Laura Braunstein and Jay Satterfield and will be on display in Rauner Library's Class of 1965 Galleries September 10 - November 1, 2014.
