4339Bohemian Poet's Group in Hawaii?
- Mar 8, 2008Aloha to everyone -
I'm seeking information if anyone has some about a poet's group that
the late Bob Strauss referred to me. I've been researching Don
Blanding to find ties to our great-great-grandfather Herbert Milton
Shakespeare Ayres - he was an Englishman by birth - but spent much
time in the islands prior to the overthrow and then returned after in
mid-1890s. He published several poetic works of his own in 1900's and
was a newspaperman /sportswriter-editor for both the local papers.
Bob Krauss shared the following with me in April 2005:
"However, in the back of my mind is a group of writers in the 1920 and
30s, a bohemian, literary group to which Don Blanding belonged. It's
seems to me that the name Ayres is associated with that bunch. But I
can't give you a reference."
If anyone has information about this literary group or even more
knowledge of Herbert Ayres - I'd be greatly appreciative.
