Kudos to Robert Stilling

Kudos to Robert Stilling for his discovery of the Robert Frost poem. I met Robert (the student, not the poet) briefly at UVA when he volunteered to orally proof my transcription of Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Aside from people I already knew (which I thank for their generous help), Robert was the only other grad student to volunteer when I begged for assistants to help orally proofread UTC in Era. Goodness may be its own reward, but it’s nice to see a good person doing good work rewarded with acknowledgment. He mentioned that he was working on Frost, but he did not mention anything about discovering a new poem, though from timeline in VQR I think he already suspected the poem was “unknown” when he volunteered.

What a neat coup for a graduate student.
