Abstract: Letters, notes, and clippings concerning Lowes' work on the English poet, John Keats.
Lowes was an American scholar of English literature who received his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1905. He taught English at Swarthmore College (1905-1909), Washington University (1909-1918), and at Harvard beginning in 1918, where he remained until he retired in 1939. He was best known for his work on the Romantic poets.
This material was removed from various volumes on John Keats that the Lowes family gave to the Houghton Library. The books were cataloged as separate volumes and the manuscript material was removed to the Keats Room files for use in cataloging the John Keats papers, also held by the Houghton Library. The Keats Room files were weeded in 2002 and this material cataloged.
