Will Carleton

a.k.a. William McKendree Carleton

Author Code: AWKC

Born: Oct. 21, 1845 - Hudson, Michigan, USA

Died: Dec. 18, 1912 - Hillsdale, Michigan, USA

Educated at Hillsdale College in Michigan, Carleton graduated in 1869. He had already begun to publish his poetry while still at school and joined a Hillsdale newspaper as a journalist. He then joined the Detroit Weekly Tribune as an editor in 1871. His poem Betsy and I Are Out, received rave reviews and was published in Harper's Weekly that year. His most famous poem, Over the Hill to the Poorhouse, followed in 1872 and firmly established Carleton in the literary world. In 1878, he moved to Boston where he met and married Anne Goodell. The couple then moved to New York City in 1882. Carleton continued to publish his poetry in addition to a few short stories and novellas over the years that followed. His wife died in 1904 and in 1907, Carleton returned to Michigan where he was considered one of the state's heroes. In 1919, legislation was passed in Michigan that required teachers to teach at least one of Carleton's poems in school. His other works include Rifts in the Cloud (1869), Farm Ballads (1873), Farm Legends (1875), Farm Festivals (1881), Her Tour (1882), The Old Reading Class (1883), City Ballads (1885), An Ancient Spell (1887), Four Dogs (1894), Rhymes of Our Planet (1895), The Lianhan Shee (1900), The Little Black-Eyed Rebel (1906) and A Thousand Thoughts with an Index of Subjects (1908).
