Personal papers of the American poet Edwin Markham, collected by Dr. Vernon B. Hampton of Staten Island, N.Y. Of note are
original manuscripts, early teaching and school administration records, one pocket diary (1902), and a letter from Jack London
American poet Edwin Markham moved from California to Staten Island, New York, circa 1901, where he lived until his death in
1940. Staten Island local historian Dr. Vernon B. Hampton was apparently his literary executor, friend, and colleague, and
presumably acquired these papers from Markham.
