Correspondence and papers of Ina Donna Coolbrith (1842-1928), California poet. In the early days of the Overland Monthly Miss Coolbrith was associated with Bret Harte as an editor; gave encouragement to the young Joaquin Miller; and by the turn of the century had published several volumes of her own verse. The San Francisco fire destroyed her manuscripts and mementos and left her without employment. When the exposition was held in San Francisco she summoned a World Congress of Authors and in the same year was crowned poet laureate of California.
