(1884–1921), born in Philadelphia, became a leading Greenwich Village aesthete who supported himself as a journalist and music critic and who was significant as a poet. His friends included Mabel Dodge and Carl Van Vechten, about each of whom he wrote a verse Portrait. His urbane, elegant poetry, a reminiscence of the fin de siècle and an anticipation of Wallace Stevens, appeared in Discords (1912), Sonnets from the Patagonian (1914), Two Deaths in the Bronx (1916), Nine Poems from a Valetudinarium (1916), and Ironica (1919). His brief career ended by suicide.
