Description
Records of the Edwin Markham Poetry Society, donated by a past member, including poetry competition records from the 1980s, and administrative records from the 1930s-1980s.
Background
The Edwin Markham Poetry Society was founded circa 1930 to encourage interest in poetry and kindred literature and arts, to sponsor an annual poetry contest, and to preserve the contents of the Hoe Room at the Edwin Markham House (formerly located at 832 South Eight Street in San Jose, now located at History Park). The organization's goals were to study poetic literature and allied subjects, to further the work of members and to provide a visitor reception center in the Edwin Markham house. It was disbanded circa 1990.
