Lawyers and Poetry
William Jewett Pabodie
"lawyer and poet"
[W. Stewart Wallace, A Dictionary of North American Authors
"Mr. Pabodie is a native of Providence, in Rhode Island. He was admitted to the bar in the spring of 1837, and has since, I believe, practised his profession in his native city." [Rufus Wilmot Griswold, The Poets and Poetry of America 515 (Philadelphia: Cary & Hart, 3rd ed., 1846)] [Most biographical sources give 1915 as an approximate date of Padobie's birth. We have found one source that lists his birth as 1812, and we have, therefore, adopted the more definitive date. See, California State Board of Education, First [ - ] reader (Sacramento, California: State Printing Office, 1886)]
