Creator:
Hodgson, Ralph, 1871-1962
Extent: 16 linear feet
Very little is known about the early life of Ralph Hodgson (1871-1962), a British poet. In the 1890s, he worked as a newspaper and magazine illustrator, signing some of his works 'Yorick', and, in 1913, founded "The Sign of the Flying Fame" publishers along with Claud Lovat Fraser and Holbrook Jackson. Hodgson published a variety of poetry volumes prior to joining that army at the beginning of World War I. In 1923, he accepted a position as a lecturer in English at Sendai University in Japan. It was here that he met his third wife, Aurelia Bolliger (1898-1984), an American born teacher at the Women’s College of Sendai. The couple faced a variety of difficulties during the early years of their marriage, including Aurelia’s young age, loss of job because of her relationship with Ralph, and her family’s struggle to accept their marriage. In 1938, the Hodgson and Bolliger retired to the United States at Owlacres a farm outside of Minerva, Ohio where Hodgson lived his remaining years in relative seclusion and anonymity. While Aurelia taught English at the local high school and took care of her husband in his later years, Hodgson continued to publish poetry until his death in 1962. The collection is organized into four sections: Correspondence, Poetry, Other Material and Aurelia Hodgson Material (which consists of Personal Correspondence and Notebooks). (View full finding aid.)

Creator:
Gordon, Phyllis Goodhart, 1913-1994
Extent: 42 linear feet
Phyllis Walter Goodhart (1913-1994) was a graduate of Bryn Mawr College (BA 1935) and a Latin and Greek scholar. While at Bryn Mawr, she developed a life-long interest in the works of the Italian humanists, especially Poggio Bracciolini. Mrs. Gordan's extensive scholarly papers reflect her many years of careful study of Italian humanism. Over the years she had acquired a notable collection of published and unpublished research materials from which she generated her meticulous notes on literally hundreds of medieval and Renaissance scholars and events. A majority of the collection is bibliographic and biographic notes on Renaissance leaders, scholars, and ecclesiastics. Additionally the collection contains a catalog of humanist manuscripts in European libraries, notes on Ernst Walser's archive of research materials, and a concordance for the numeration of Poggio' letters to Nicolaus de Niccolis in the editions of Gordan, Tonelli, Wilmanns, and Rüegg (unpublished). Furthermore, the extensive collection of microfilms contains excerpts from more than five-hundred manuscripts, as well as a film of Rüegg's critical text of Poggio' letters to Nicolaus.

Creator:
Smith, Pamela Colman, 1877-1925
Extent: 1.5 linear feet (1 box)
Pamela Colman Smith was an author, illustrator and stage designer. Born in London, she spent most of her youth in England and Jamaica. She was educated at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, which she left in 1897. In 1898, she moved to New York City, where she began selling her illustrations and exhibiting her work in galleries. She returned to England in 1900, where she designed sets for the London stage, and continued to exhibit her artwork. A significant part of Smith's career consisted of illustrating children's books and collections of folk tales, ballads and verse. Her published works include Widdicombe Fair (1899), Annancy Stories (1899), The Golden Vanity and the Green Bed (1899), and Chim-Chim: Folk Stories from Jamaica (1905). Works by other authors that she illustrated include Christmas Carol, by Edwin Waugh (1898), and In Chimney Corners: Merry Tales of Irish Folk-lore, by Seumas MacManus (1899). This collection consists primarily of 17 letters written by Smith between 1896 and 1900 to her cousin Mary B. Reed. The letters were sent from Jamaica, where her family lived for several years, and later from New York and London, where Smith moved to pursue her career as an illustrator. The letters report on her activities writing, designing, and staging amateur plays, and show the development of her work as an illustrator, from the design of theatrical sets and costumes, to advertising posters she created for family friends.
