Scope and Contents

Two published volumes of poetry Elmer Ellsworth Brown wrote additional poems in. One volume was the first copy from the printer of Brown's 1923 book of poetry "Victory and Other Verse," which he inscribed to his wife and continued to add poems in blank spaces for several years. There is a tipped in photo of brown and pasted to the back cover is the letter of gift from Arthur H. Nason. The other volume is a book of poetry entitled "Verses" by Lawrence A. McLouth. It is inscribed to Brown and his wife, and Brown used some of the back pages to compose a poem entitled "Lullaby."

Separated Materials

These two volumes were orginally a part of the Faculty Publications Collection (RG 1.1). Upon a survey of the collection, a determination was made that, due to the handwritten annotations, these books had research value independent of their being faculty publications and were added to the Elmer Ellsworth Brown Papers.
