Ina Coolbrith, Librarian & Laureate of California
Ina Coolbrith,
Librarian & Poet Laureate
of California

Ina Coolbrith, née Josephina Anna Smith
b. 3-10-1841; Nauvoo, Illinois
d. 2-29-1928; Berkeley, CA

Ina Coolbrith was the first Poet Laureate of California and a librarian who inspired a young Jack London and Isadora Duncan.

As a ten year old she rode with explorer James Beckwourth through the Sierra Nevada mountain pass that bears his name, when her mother and step-father moved the family from St. Louis to Los Angeles. She was given her mother's maiden name so as not to be associated with her father and uncle's Mormon faith.

She met a young Samuel Langhorne Clemens and knew Bret Harte, Ambrose Bierce, Joaquin Miller, Gertrude Atherton; Ansel Adams photographed her.

Coolbrith's collection of books and papers were lost in the fire that consumed San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake.

• “...I named you ‘Noble’. That is what you were to me — noble. That was the feeling I got from you. Oh, yes, I got, also, the feeling of sorrow and suffering, but dominating them, always riding above all, was noble. No woman has so affected me to the extent you did. I was only a little lad. I knew absolutely nothing about you. Yet in all the years that have passed I have met no woman so noble as you.” ~ letter from Jack London

James Fenimore Cooper
b. 9-15-1789; Burlington, New Jersey
d. 9-14-1851; Cooperstown, NY

James Fenimore Cooper, one of the first American authors to be widely read all over the world, is best remembered for his historical novels known as the Leatherstocking Tales, featuring frontiersman Natty Bumppo. Among his most famous works is the Romantic novel The Last of the Mohicans, set in the Adirondack Mountains. He also wrote numerous sea-stories.

James Fenimore Cooper ~
• “Should we distrust [a] man because his manners are not our manners?” ~ The Last of the Mohicans
• “The very existence of government at all, infers inequality. The citizen who is preferred to office becomes the superior to those who are not, so long as he is the repository of power, and the child inherits the wealth of the parent as a controlling law of society.” ~ The American Democrat
• “It is a besetting vice of democracies to substitute public opinion for law. This is the usual form in which masses of men exhibit their tyranny.” ~ The American Democrat
• “They may talk of their Jeffersons and Jacksons, but I set down Washington and Natty Bumppo as the two only really great men of my time.” Home as Found

• “Hearty laughter is a good way to jog internally without having to go outdoors.”
• “Man is not imprisoned by habit. Great changes in him can be wrought by crisis – once that crisis can be recognized and understood.”
• “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
