Allen Porter recording, 1947
According to the donor, the original recordings were made on an early recording cutting machine which one of the students brought to the class. The poems were written by passing a pad of paper around the room with each student writing one line of poetry on a given topic. Each student would fold the page after writing his/her line so the next writer would not see what was already written.
