dc.descriptionDonald Davidson Early Poems Collection finding aid. This small collection of 11 typescript poems with some holograph notes by Donald Davidson dating from 1916 was given to Vanderbilt University Special Collections by James Summerville, who was given the poems by Will Ella Tatom Johnson Smith ( Mrs. James Mapheus Smith), who was given the poems by Donald Davidson. Mrs. Smith was first married to Stanley Johnson, one of the Fugitive poets, and she herself wrote poetry. These poems were never published in the Fugitive or in any other collection. They were written just as Davidson was joining members of what was to be the Nashville Fugitive poet group in discussions of poetry, philosophy, literature, and political ideas, and so are an important addition to an understanding of his early work. File 13 of this collection contains the photocopies of these poems. Also included with these papers is a photocopy of the holograph poem "To Rupert Brook" by Ridley Wills, another of the Fugitive poets, with 2 accompanying letters with background information dated October 19, 1971 and September 9, 1978.en_US
