“You pay a mere compiler a high tribute when you take time to index a ‘thing of shreds and patches’.”
A letter from Evelyn S. Lease to Edward Hoyt postmarked March 25, 1947.
Evelyn Lease was the Kellogg-Hubbard Library’s longest serving librarian (1896-1935) and Edward Hoyt served as State Archivist for many years. Lease’s poetry calendar, in which she copied down a favorite poem or quote each day for an entire year, is on display at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library along with Edward Hoyt’s index to the calendar. The exhibit includes samples from the poetry calendar, letters, and other memorabilia and will be up through April in the Bitterman-Kitzmiller Room on the second floor of the library.
