Stedman, Edmund Clarence, 1833-1908, American banker, poet, and critic, b. Hartford, Conn., attended Yale. A successful Wall St. broker, he was also one of the leading poets of his time although his somewhat derivative poetry, similar to Tennyson's in style, is little read today. As critic he wrote his most significant works, Victorian Poets (1876) and The Poets of America (1885); he compiled the excellent collections A Victorian Anthology (1895) and An American Anthology (1900).

See his Poems (1908).
