Morse, Richard Ely


Morse, Richard Ely
   (1909–1986)
   Poet and correspondent of HPL. Morse, a graduate of Amherst College and residing in Princeton, N.J., was introduced to HPL by Samuel Loveman in May 1932 when HPL was passing through New York; a brisk correspondence thereupon ensued. At the time Morse was a librarian at Princeton University, but in 1933 he moved to Washington, D.C., to do research for his uncle at the Library of Congress. He published one book of poetry, Winter Garden(Amherst, Mass.: Poetry Society of Amherst College, 1931). His copy for HPL bears the inscription: “For Howard Lovecraft, Magnus Magister, in return for all his gracious kindness and friendship and for all the shuddering pleasure of his tales and verse with admiration and gratitude from Richard Ely Morse.” Morse also published “Some Modern Book Illustrations” ( Californian4, No. 4 [Spring 1937]).
