Emory University is the lucky recipient of Raymond Danowski’s modern poetry collection — a library in itself, consisting of 60,000 volumes of poetry as well as periodicals, posters, recordings and other items devoted to modern poetry in the English language. He has even donated an 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. He traces the genesis of his collection to a love of the poet W.H. Auden, chalking up yet another contribution to the world of arts and letters by that esteemed poet! Indeed, the collection includes about a thousand Auden volumes.
