the poet and editor, was born in New York City. As a child, Kreymborg
was interested in books, chess, and music. His interest in music eventually
led him into literature when he wrote a “prose symphony.” In
1913 he started the little magazine the Glebe, one of the first
little magazines to publish experimental writers. The Glebe barely
ran over a year, but Kreymborg kept busy in the literary scene by starting
the Others in 1915.
Kreymborg is also responsible for Broom and American
Caravan. He and his second wife joined the expatriate scene in Paris
for a brief period in 1921. Later in Kreymborg’s life, he served
as the president of the Poetry Society of America, was elected to the
National Institute of Arts and Letters, and acted as judge for the Pulitzer
Prize in Poetry.
