Edna St. Vincent Millay


American poet whose fourth volume "The Harp Weaver," won the Pulitzer Prize in 1923. She was first published in 1917 with "Renascence," and graduated from Vassar shortly after. Millay also did lecture tours and radio performances, often with the aid of bathtub gin. She traveled around the world with her husband, Eugen Jan Boissevain, whom she married in 1923. She was a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Five foot tall, red hair and green eyes, she was considered a spitfire and suspected of being bi-sexual.

Millay died on 10/19/1950, Austerlitz, NY.

Source Notes

Camelia Moldovan quotes biography by Nancy Milford, "Savage Beauty," 2001, for a birth time of 'a few minutes after 6 am' and is quite specific about the circumstances. She lives, I believe, in New York, and could be contacted as to what her source was. Her book is well documented, and she has spoken to Millay's surviving sister."

(Formerly, Robert Jansky quoted, in 1980, "biography with approximate time of 11:00 AM." LMR cannot locate biog.)
