Frost's "whimsical" UofM gig

Interesting piece about Robert Frost's stint as an artist in residence at UofM. A student at the time called him "humorous and ruthless" and "an excellent gossip." The arrangement with Frost is similar to what the MFA program does today, though Frost's tenure seems like it was more intimate as far as interacting and working with the students.

Also, I have to point out that the student literary journal at that time was called Whimsies. Really? Whimsies? Gross.

Thanks, Laura, for the tip.
