Housman Papers, Seymour Adelman Collection, Special Collections Department, Bryn Mawr College Library. Restrictions on Access This collection is open for research. A.E. Housman (1859-1936) Alfred Edward Housman, the English poet and classicist, was born on March 26, 1859 near Bromsgrove, Worcestershire. He was the elder brother of both Laurence Housman, the celebrated dramatist and Clemence Housman, an illustrator and political activist. When Housman was twelve his mother died from cancer and his father withdrew into alcoholism. Throwing himself into the study of Latin and Greek at the Bromsgrove School, he earned a scholarship to St. John's College, Oxford where his unrequited love for fellow classmate, Moses Jackson, seems to have contributed to his failure to pass his final examinations in 1881. Despite this academic set-back, Housman did not lose interest in classical languages and continued to study on his own at the British Museum in his spare time while he worked as a patent clerk in London. Several articles he produced during this time on classical poets and playwrights were published in

Imperishable peace:
Have these for yours' Alfred Edward Housman's ashes are buried in St. Lawrence's Church, Ludlow, Shropshire, England. (See map...ref no. 21) A cherry tree stump marks the spot and a plaque was placed on the north wall of the church. A new cherry tree has subsequently been planted by the Housman Society to the west of the church. The second poem of A Shropshire Lad famously describes a cherry tree: 'Loveliest of trees, the cherry now/Is hung with bloom along the bough,'. Housman was educated at Bromsgrove School - where he won a scholarship to St. John's College Oxford. Housman was a natural academic but mysteriously failed his finals and left Oxford without a degree. From 1882 he worked for ten years in Her Majesty's Patent Office, pursuing his interest in Latin and Greek in his spare time. In 1892 he was appointed Professor of Latin at University College, London and later took up the same position at Cambridge University in 1911. As a poet, Housman is chiefly remembered for the wistful and metrical poems of

Horace Odes 4.7 translated by A. E. Housman
Diffugere Nives (Horace, Odes 4.7)
trans. A.E. Housman
The snows are fled away, leaves on the shaws
And grasses in the mead renew their birth,
The river to the river-bed withdraws,
And altered is the fashion of the earth.
The Nymphs and Graces three put off their fear
And unapparelled in the woodland play.
The swift hour and the brief prime of the year
Say to the soul, Thou wast not born for aye.
Thaw follows frost; hard on the heel of spring Treads summer sure to die, for hard on hers Comes autumn with his apples scattering; Then back to wintertide, when nothing stirs. But oh, whate'er the sky-led seasons mar, Moon upon moon rebuilds it with her beams; Come we where Tullus and where Ancus are And good Aeneas, we are dust and dreams. Torquatus, if the gods in heaven shall add The morrow to the day, what tongue has told? Feast then thy heart, for what thy heart has had The fingers of no heir will ever hold.

As it turns out, Crosby, North Dakota, founded in 1904, is located 186 miles northwest of Bismarck in the northwest corner of the state and, as of the 2000 census, was home to just over 1,000 residents.
After pondering the location and size of Crosby, And, thanks to the wonders of the internet, I found a few answers to that question. This photo and excerpt is from Thura Truax Hires Manuscripts
The life story of Allan Truax is itself most remarkable. Born in Michigan in 1872, he became a North Dakota School teacher. There, he married Evelyn Baldwin, a fellow teacher, and also born in 1872. Allan lived to be 93 and Evelyn lived longer. Allan spent most of his work life in the employ of the Great Northern Railway. He and his wife became well known for their civic and Church leadership. Allan developed great talent as a speaker and a writer. He was a second cousin of Thura Truax Hires.

    "To An Athlete Dying Young" by A.E. Housman To An Athlete Dying Young is A.E. Housman's best-known poem, and there's a good chance you've come across it before. On the surface, the poem is an elegy with a straightforward theme: one should take solace in the fact that a young man died at the height of his glory. For me, the poem's real power is beneath the surface, where the struggle and emotional restraint that typified Housman's life is palpable. It's remarkable that despite the poem's sing-songy formiambic tetrameter is the standard meter of nursery rhymesHousman conveys the sense of barrenness and deep sorrow that permeated so much of his work. His life was, by all accounts, melancholy and reclusive. He was gay (they probably didn't teach you that in school) in a world where it was far less accepted than it is today. He spent his life in love (unrequited) with a heterosexual friend. The first line of the third stanza gives me chills. That's where the man who lived and wrote so buttoned up starts letting his guard down.

His outlook on life was pessimistic, and his poems characteristically express the fleeting quality of love and beauty. He published only two books of verse: A Shropshire Lad (1896) and Last Poems (1922). After his death on April 30, 1936, his brother Laurence published More Poems (1936), Collected Poems (1939), and Manuscript Poems (1955).

    Terence, This Is Stupid Stuff
    "Terence, this is stupid stuff:
    You eat your victuals fast enough;
    There can't be much amiss, 'tis clear,
    To see the rate you drink your beer.
    But oh, good Lord, the verse you make,
    It gives a chap the belly-ache.
    The cow, the old cow, she is dead;
    It sleeps well, the horned head:
    We poor lads, 'tis our turn now

    Pretty friendship 'tis to rhyme Your friends to death before their time Moping melancholy mad: Come, pipe a tune to dance to, lad." Why, if 'tis dancing you would be, There's brisker pipes than poetry. Say, for what were hop-yards meant, Or why was Burton built on Trent? Oh many a peer of England brews Livelier liquor than the Muse, And malt does more than Milton can To justify God's ways to man. Ale, man, ale's the stuff to drink For fellows whom it hurts to think: Look into the pewter pot To see the world as the world's not. And faith, 'tis pleasant till 'tis past: The mischief is that 'twill not last. Oh I have been to Ludlow fair And left my necktie God knows where
