In honor of the centennial of William Everson’s birth, Special Collections staff member and former Everson student Maureen Carey has prepared a small display highlighting materials from the library’s extensive collection of works by and about Everson, including publications from the Lime Kiln Press.
William Everson was a native Californian. He joined the Dominican brotherhood in 1951 and for two decades penned his poetry under the name of Brother Antoninus. When he shed his monk's robes in 1969, Everson came to live in Santa Cruz, where he remained until his death at the age of 81. He taught poetry at UC Santa Cruz between 1969 and 1978.
