Hart Crane & Harry Crosby
| || ||On this day in 1929, Hart Crane hosted a party for Harry and Caresse Crosby, attended by a number of now-famous friends -- E. E. Cummings, William Carlos Williams, Malcolm Cowley, Walker Evans. Two-and-a-half days later, Crosby and his mistress, Josephine Bigelow, committed double suicide; and two-and-a-half years later, Hart Crane committed suicide. Both Crane and Crosby were in their early thirties when they died, and both are regarded as being among the most lost of the Lost Generation.|
