W. H. Auden, now a U.S. citizen, declares his New York neighborhood is too dangerous and returns to Oxford from the United States.
James K. Baxter, one of New Zealand's best-known poets, writes two original poems on the wallpaper of a room in the home of painter Michael Illingworth and his wife Dene. Soon after, Baxter died. In 1973, after Baxter's death, the Illingworths removed the sections of wallpaper containing the poems and sent them to the Hocken Library to be stored with Baxter’s other papers.
