Papers belonging to American poet and author Norreys Jephson O'Conor.
Norreys Jephson O'Conor (1885-1958) poet and critic, was born in New York City in December 1885. He graduated from Harvard in 1911 and worked for several years in the publishing field before returning to Harvard for an advanced degree in Old and Middle Irish. O'Conor considered himself part of the Irish Literary Revival and moved to London in the 1930s. In 1939, he returned to the United States and eventually settled in Pasadena, later moving to Santa Barbara. In 1952, O'Conor published a volume of verse, Late offering. His earlier books included translations from the Gaelic and several volumes of social history, tracing, in part, the history of an English family of the Renaissance, a distant relation of his. O'Conor died in Santa Barbara in 1958.
