History of the Butterfly, Part 73: Valentine’s Day

Henry Webster Parker’s Book Poems sat in the library at the University of California for a century and a half.

You may remember that Henry was the poet, preacher, and college professor whose name is on the description of the Poweshiek skipper, although his wife Helen probably discovered it.

At some point someone read through the book and wrote her own feelings about the poem “Love’s Sunset.”

Henry could not be reached for comment.
