Goodenough, Arthur [Henry]

   American poet and amateur journalist from Brattleboro, Vt. He was the author of several small, privately printed volumes of poetry, including “Blossoms of Yesterday”(1896), My Lady’s Shoes and Other Poems (1911), Songs of Four Decades (1927), and Grass of Parnasses (ed. Walter John Coates) (1937). His poem “Lovecraft—an Appreciation” (included in his “Further Recollections of Amateur Journalism,” Vagrant,Spring 1927) was in parts so effusive that HPL thought it a parody, but Goodenough’s friend W.Paul Cook convinced him it was genuine. HPL accordingly responded with his own poetic tribute, “To Arthur Goodenough, Esq.” ( Tryout,September 1918). HPL visited Goodenough in Brattleboro in August 1927 and also in June 1928; this latter visit, in which several other local writers participated, was written up in the Brattleboro Reformer(June 18, 1928) under the title “Literary Persons Meet in Guilford.” Goodenough’s home seems to be a partial inspiration for Akeley’s home in “The Whisperer in Darkness” (1930).
