Pulitzer Prizes in Poetry

On the Librarian's Tools Tab of the NHU-PAC there is, among other things, a link to the winners of the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. As of this afternoon this linked list includes all of the books that have won this award since 1922 when Edwin Arlington Robinson won the first Pulitzer Prize given for Poetry. He won again in 1925 and again in 1928. Robinson, who spent his summers at the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, NH, is just one of the Pulitzer-winning poets with Granite State connections: Robert Frost, Richard Eberhart, Maxine Kumin, and Charles Simic are also on this list.

The only remaining category that needs to have all the relevant records coded so they will come up when you click on the NHU-PAC Pulitzer prize link is "Biography or Autobiography." The links for History, Fiction, and General Nonfiction are already complete lists.
