J. Edward Rall Cultural Lecture with Former U.S. Poet Laurete

Ms. Dove will discuss her latest book, Sonata Mulattica, a poetic treatise on the life of 19th-century Afro-European violinist George Polgreen Bridgetower. Dove served as U.S. Poet Laureate (1993-1995) and was recipient of the 1987 Pulitzer Prize in poetry. She is sole editor of The Penguin Anthology of Twentieth-Century American Poetry (2011), and teaches at the University of Virginia where she is the Commonwealth Professor of English.

The lecture honors the memory of J. Edward Rall, founder of the Clinical Endocrinology Branch (now within NIDDK) and scientific director of the National Institute of Arthritis and Metabolic Diseases, which is now represented by NIDDK and NIAMS. He recommended in 1984 that NIH add a cultural lecture to its Director’s Lecture series.
