On the verge of adulthood, Lincoln Kirstein has already developed a passion for art, literature and dance. He explores his own creativity in writings and drawing and seeks out the society of other young, promising artists.
In 1926, he enrolls at Harvard University and soon after is co-founder and co-editor of Hound & Horn, a literary arts journal to which he contributes articles along with Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, Katherine Anne Porter, E.E. Cummings, among others.
