"More than 6,000 people were in the audience at Gregory Gym, some having
driven from as far away as Louisiana. They heard the great man forcefully
read his most notable poems, including parts of “The Wasteland” and “The
Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.” Before Eliot left the campus, he passed
on to Harry Ransom a manuscript copy of “The Wasteland” that contained an
extra line. The story lives on that Eliot was presented with a Stetson
cowboy hat."
