"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."
