Edna St. Vincent Millay, Camden, ca. 1906

Contributed by Camden Public Library


This image of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Edna St. Vincent Millay was taken by her aunt Clementine Parsons, known as "Auntie Clem" or "Auntie Kem."

The back of the photo is inscribed by Parsons to Millay's best friend, Corinne Sawyer, saying, "This is a snap shot I took of Vincent when she was 15 and made us a visit. It is a good likeness but not a real clear picture, because she was coming toward me when I snapped her. I'm sure that you will see a familiar expression of those school-girl chum days. I hope that you will love it, as I do."
