Ingalls, Jeremy, 1911-2000

Jeremy Ingalls (1911-2000), J1932, G1933, H1965, was a famous poet and scholar, authoring such books as The Metaphysical Sword and The Galilean Way.

Ingalls, born in Gloucester in 1911, graduated from Jackson in 1932. While at Tufts, Ingalls was a frequent contributor to the Weekly, and she edited the student-published Tuftonian. She remained at Tufts after her graduation, receiving her Masters in 1933. After leaving Tufts, Ingalls taught high school in Gloucester until she was hired as Assistant Professor of American Literature at Western College in 1941. She remained at Western until 1947, when she was invited to act as resident poet at Rockford College in Illinois. During her tenure at Rockford, Ingalls served as Director of Asian Studies, Chairman of the Arts and the Division of Language and Literature, and Chairman of the Department of British and American Literature.

Ingalls' work in poetry and Asian Studies earned her numerous awards, including the Yale Series Young Poets Award in 1941. She would also serve as Fulbright professor at Kobe College in Japan from 1957 to 1958, and remained in Japan in 1958 as a Rockefeller Foundation lecturer.

Ingalls retired in 1980 in order to devote more time to her writing, including finishing the second two installments of her epic poem, "Tahl," which she began working on at Tufts. Ingalls died on March 16, 2000.
