Robert Frost Collection

Robert Frost Collection 1874-1998
  • Extent: 15 linear feet
Abstract
Distinguished poet, lecturer, and teacher, Robert Frost won four Pulitzer Prizes over the course of his career, and was by his death in 1963 considered to be one of the best known American poets of his day.

The Robert Frost Collection contains some 12,000 items, and as one of the first collections of Robert Frost material brought together, this collection represents not just Frost's life as a professional poet, but also his life as a public figure. In particular, the collection documents Frost's nearly lifelong connection with the town of Amherst both as a professor at Amherst College and as a part-time resident.
Background Note
The distinguished American poet, Robert Frost, was born in San Francisco in 1874 to William Prescott Frost, Jr. and Isabelle Moodie. After the death of her husband in 1885, Frost's mother moved the family to Salem, New Hampshire, where she began teaching. He attended Lawrence High School, Dartmouth College, and Harvard University. In 1895, Frost married Elinor Miriam White, whom he met in high school. A Boy's Will, published in 1913, was his first book of poetry, before which he published only a handful of poems. Winning four Pulitzer Prizes over the course of his career, Frost was by his death in 1963 considered to be one of the best known American poets of his day.

In 1952, Robert Frost inscribed a volume of his poetry, "To the Jones Library, My first serious collector and long time friend under Charles Green." Charles R. Green, the library's first director, realizing early that Frost was a most remarkable poet, began to gather every scrap of information on the poet that could be found. When Frost became aware of the collection of editions, clippings and ephemera, he presented the library with manuscripts and signed copies of his works. The Jones Library collection was thus the first major collection of Frost. Frost's donations continued throughout his life. The collection grew so rapidly during the years 1930 to 1959 that a room in Special Collections was set aside to house the materials. In 1959, the room was dedicated with Frost himself present. Since then, the collection continues to grow with gifts and purchases of materials related to Frost. It is thought to be one of the four or five richest Frost collections in the world.

Frost first came to Amherst to lecture and read at Amherst College in 1916. From that time until 1963, he was intimately connected with the college and the town. From 1916 to 1920 and 1923 to 1925, he taught English and composition at the college. After giving the Simpson Lecture in 1926 he became professor of English on the John Woodruff Simpson Foundation until 1938. From 1949 until his death in 1963, he was Simpson Lecturer in Literature, spending several weeks every year lecturing and reading on campus. While in Amherst he spent much time at the Jones Library. Not only did he use the library in person, but he had books and magazines sent to him wherever he was. He also stored part of his personal library at the Jones in the 1930s. The catalog of these books is an important indication of Frost's reading habits.
Scope & Content
As one of the first collections of Robert Frost material brought together, this collection represents not just Frost's life as a professional poet, but also his life as a public figure. In particular, the collection documents Frost's nearly lifelong connection with the town of Amherst both as a professor at Amherst College and as a part-time resident. The Robert Frost Collection contains some 12,000 items, including autograph manuscript poems, letters, critical and biographical studies, subject files, audio recordings, and some 700 photographs. Manuscripts include the complete set of Frost's collections A Further Range and New Hampshire, and original drafts of "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "Birches." The 100 letters written by Frost are varied; they were addressed to his publishers, to Charles R. Green, to friends, and perhaps most interesting, to his childhood sweetheart Sabra Peabody in 1886.

The library's collection formed the basis of the first full-scale Frost bibliography compiled by W.B.S. Clymer and C.R. Green and titled Robert Frost: A Bibliography (Amherst: The Jones Library Inc.: 1937).

Restrictions
Restrictions on use:
  • The letters of Robert Frost to Edward M. Lewis are restricted by order of the donors. These letters may not be quoted directly for publication, nor can they by edited wholly or in part.
Restrictions on access:
  • The collection is open to research.
Provenance
Custodial history:
  • Charles Green, first director of the Jones Library, was the first collector to believe Frost sufficiently important enough to collect. Thinking comprehensively, he began collecting Frost items from a variety of sources: private donors, dealers, and even Frost himself. While the provenance of the items in this collection is varied, the unifying factor in almost every instance is Green as collector.
  • Series 8: Warren R. Brown Collection on Robert Frost was donated by the family of Warren R. Brown in 2016 and was added to the collection as a separate series to keep the provenance intact. Original letters from Robert Frost to Warren R. Brown have been moved to Series 2: Correspondence.

Collection Overview
Series 1: Writings 1910-1951
Consists of more than 40 autograph manuscripts poems as well as autograph manuscript notebooks of poems that include works appearing in Mountain Interval, New Hampshire, and A Further Range. Prose writings, too, are represented in this series with four autograph manuscripts that include "The Poetry of Amy Lowell" and "Ten Books That Should be in Every Public Library." Finally, galley proofs for West-Running Brook, A Further Range, A Witness Tree,and Complete Poems compliment the manuscript material, showing in some instances the evolution of the work from manuscript draft to its final published state.
Series 2: Correspondence 1884-1959
The bulk of the series contains letters by Frost, which are primarily concerned with the publication of his poems and contain very few personal reflections. Rare examples of Frost remarking on his personal life include mentions of the death of his youngest daughter, the unexpected marriage of his son Carol to fiancee Lillian, and the family's grief upon the death of their dog Winnie. The bulk of the letters discuss preparations of manuscripts for publication as well as Frost's work both as a poet and as a busy guest lecturer.

A significant portion of the letters are written to Charles Green of the Jones Library. Over the years, Green became a friend to Frost and these letters reflect the change in their relationship throughout the more than three decades during which they corresponded. The content of the Green-Frost letters include: Green's bibliography of Frost's works, Green's collection of Frost manuscripts, books, letters, and the dedication of a room to Frost in the Jones Library. Later, Frost relies on Green to assist him with errands while he is away from Amherst. For example, Green is able to inquire after packages left for Frost in Amherst, or oversee the shipment of personal items, such as Frost's Persian rugs. Ultimately, however, Frost is unable to match Green's enthusiasm for collecting and displaying the Frost Collection. He continues to express his gratitude, but he cannot participate in all of the activities to promote the collection. Letters from Green to Frost can be found in Series 4: Charles Green Correspondence.

The series also contains a small handful of letters from Elinor Frost and two letters from Ezra Pound, one addressed to Frost in England.
Series 3: Subject Files 1875-1998
The bulk of the collection consists of materials relating to Frost and his life. These materials include articles and news clippings about Frost and his family, invitations and programs to events he participated in, honors and awards bestowed on him, interviews given by Frost, musical compositions based on Frost's poems, and catalogs advertising the sale of his works. Taken together these materials offer a picture of Frost's professional life outside of writing. As his popularity grew, the demand on his time increased, and that is reflected both in the number of invitations to speak and the awards he received. Frost was not only a prolific write, he was also a teacher and lecturer. This series documents his life as public person in addition to his life as a professional poet. It documents, too, his legacy, including scholarly articles, news clippings, programs, and correspondence that continue to celebrate the poet and his work.
Series 4: Charles Green Correspondence 1916-1989
This series consists of letters to and from Charles Green concerning the Frost Collection at the Jones Library. These letters record the development, growth, and use of the collection as well as the compilation of Green's bibliography of Frost. It should be noted that not every single letter to or from Green in the collection is contained in this series. In order to retain their original meaning and context, some letters were kept with the documents that they either refer to or describe. This series, however, does collocate the bulk of the Green correspondence, and taken as a whole it provides an extraordinarily comprehensive look at the evolution of this collection.

Of great significance to this series are the letters of Green to Frost as well as the correspondence of Green and Lesley Frost. Green's letters to Frost refer mostly to the collection itself and to Frost's involvement with it. In these letters, Green makes frequent requests of Frost, seeking copies of his publications or asking for details on the publication history of specific works. His letters to and from Frost's daughter, Lesley, discuss exhibits held in Frost's honor and request additional materials for the collection as well as Lesley's own work as a writer and educator.
Series 5: Photographs 1875-1963
The arrangement of this series has been preserved and is based either on geographic location (the country of the state in which the photograph is taken), by photographer, or by subject. Also included in this series is photographers' correspondence.
Series 6: Audio & Visual Recordings 1950-1986
Consists of audio records of Frost readings or lectures, but also contains records of events that took place to honor Frost after his death, in particular events held at the Jones Library.
Series 7: Robert Frost Collections at Other Repositories 1894-1945
Over the years, Green and the curators that followed him collected copies of Frost material held at other repositories. This series contains that material, bringing together Frost manuscripts and letters from Dartmouth College, the Huntington Library, Wellesley College, and Harvard University.
Series 8: Warren R. Brown Collection on Robert Frost, 1923-1975, undated
This series consists of materials owned by Warren R. Brown, a longtime friend of Frost's. It includes Christmas cards from Frost, correspondence to Brown about Frost, writings and newsclippings about Frost, and ephemera. Correspondence from Frost to Brown was moved to Series 2: Correspondence. In 2016, the family of Warren R. Brown donated these materials as well as several books by Frost. Many of the books include unique inscriptions by Frost.
