Life and Career

After high school, Frost attended Dartmouth College. His first poem while attending college was published in the New York Independent, titled: My Butterfly: An Elegy, which earned him $15.

In 1985, Frost married Elinor White, a former schoolmate; together they had six children. Frost went on to pursue a career in teaching and continued to publish his poems in magazines to support his family. He attended Harvard University from 1897 to 1899, but failed to earn his degree. He moved with his family to Derry, New Hampshire, where he took work as a cobbler, farmer and teacher at Pinkerton Academy and a state normal school in Plymouth.
