A Discography of the Harvard Vocarium

Annotation: 

The Harvard Vocarium label (1933-1955) was founded by professor Frederick C. Packard, Jr. to provide “a collection of voice recordings for use as a study aid in the appreciation of literature.” Its initial recording featured T.S. Eliot, who was Charles Eliot Norton lecturer at Harvard in 1932-33. The Vocarium was one of the first recording labels of its kind, producing early recordings by many other poets including W. H. Auden, Elizabeth Bishop, Brother Antonius, Randall Jarrell, Weldon Kees, Denise Levertov, Robert Lowell, Louis MacNeice, Marianne Moore, Anais Nin, Ezra Pound, John Crowe Ransom, Theodore Roethke, Muriel Rukeyser, May Sarton, Stephen Spender, Robert Penn Warren, and Tennessee Williams.
