"On Poetry" is uncollected. 750 pamphlets were given to the guests of
the commencement. There are a few stashed away in libraries here and
there. I would guess that the Beinecke Library at Yale University has
a copy. Gallup collected Eliot material and I believe he donated his
collection to the Beinecke. To read it I went to Concord Academy itself.
I think that "On Poetry" didn't make it into a collection because of
the things he said about studying poetry to make better voters. The
Governor of Massachusetts was there as the father of a student.
