Happy BIrthday Stanley Kunitz

kathleen writes “July 29 is Stanley Kunitz’ birthday. He will be 100. The ideal of intellectual freedom in libraries owes a great deal to concepts developed in Kunitz’ column, “The Roving Eye,” which appeared in the Wilson Library Bulletin from 1928-1943. All his life Kunitz has cherished democracy but not intolerance, intellectual provincialism or the kind of patriotism that supports merchants of death. July 27, 2005 Op-Art, “A Conversation with Stanley Kunitz” New York Times. honors his birthday.”
