Untermeyer dropped out of high school in order to work at his father's jewellery business, which he did for a number of years until his resignation in 1923. His interest in literature had begun in his youth and in 1911, he published his first book of poetry, First Love. He became editor of the Marxist journal The Masses until it was shut down by the government in 1917 for publishing material undermining the war effort. He worked on an anthology, Modern American Poetry, which appeared in 1919 and was very popular. he was a prolific writer and produced many translations, anthologies, volumes of poetry, some short stories and children's books. Following the war, he began working for the Liberator, a journal published by the Workers Party of America. He later co-founded the poetry magazine, The Seven Arts, and is credited with introducing Robert Frost in addition to many other poets of renown. In 1939, he was appointed Poet in Residence by the University of Michigan. He would later hold similar positions at the University of Kansas and Iowa State College. He joined the panel of the TV quiz show What's My Line? in 1950, and was extremely popular due to his wonderful wit. Nevertheless, his previous connections with left-wing organizations led to his removal from the show after the McCarthy hearings labeled him a Communist. He was blacklisted and never again worked in television. In 1956, he was awarded the Poetry Society of America's Gold Medal and in 1961 became a consultant to the Library of Congress. His works include Challenge (1914), The New Adam (1920), The Singing World (1923), Burning Bush (1928), The Donkey of God and Other Stories (1932), Selected Poems and Parodies (1935), Doorway to Poetry (1938), From Another World (1939), The Lowest Form of Wit (1947) and Bygones (1965).
