Adelaide Crapsey

Author Code: AACR

Born: Sep. 9, 1878 - Brooklyn Heights, New York, USA

Died: Oct. 8, 1914 - Rochester, New York, USA

Educated at Kemper Hall in Wisconsin and Vassar College in New York. She was the class poet at the latter and graduated in 1901. She returned to Kemper Hall in 1903 and taught history and literature. She left in 1904 to study at the American Academy in Rome, Italy; there her health improved, but she was forced to return to America in 1905 because of her father's problems. He had been found guilty of heresy by the church. She began teaching at Miss Low's School in Stamford, Connecticut. In the meantime, her father lost his appeal and was no longer a minister of the Episcopal Church. Adelaide's family suffered from ill health and she lost her brother to malaria and both of her sisters. The family was forced to leave their home and moved into rental accommodation in 1906. She attended the International Peace Conference in the Hague in 1907 with her father, and was active as a French translator. It was at this time that she began to feel fatigue, but it was not until 1911 that she was diagnosed with tuberculosis meningitis. She was forced to quit her job in 1908. She returned to Europe and spent time in Italy, Great Britain and France. Her health forced her to return to America in 1911. There, she taught at Smith College in Massachusetts. That year, she introduced her cinquains, a five-line poem influenced by the Japanese haiku. In August 1914, Adelaide returned to her parents' home in Rochester and died from her illness at the very young age of 36. All of her work was published posthumously and includes Verse (1922) and A Study in English Metrics (1918).
