Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection consists of a photocopy of Artemisia Anderson’s 158-page poetry notebook, a photograph of Mrs. Anderson, and a typed transcription of the notebook.
Artemisia Draper Anderson (1858-after 1927) was a Mormon housewife and poet. She lived for most of her life with her husband, Ephraim, and their seven children, in Moroni, Utah. Mrs. Anderson wrote chiefly about her family, friends, church and the flora, fauna and geography of Utah. Mr. Franklin Beard gave Holt-Atherton a photocopy of Mrs. Anderson's 158 page notebook in 1982. The original remains in the family's possession.
