CARLETON, Will, author, born in Hudson, Lena-wee County, Michigan, 21 October, 1845. He was graduated at Hillsdale in 1869. In 1878, and again in 1885, he visited Europe, spending most of the time in travel. In literature he is best known by his bal- lads of domestic life, nearly all of which have earned a wide popularity. Shortly after leaving College he began to lecture before societies and lyceums, visiting Great Britain and Canada for this purpose, besides most of the northern and western states. His published books are "Poems" (Chicago, 1871); "Farm Ballads" (New York, 1873); "Farm Legends " (1875); "Young Folks' Centennial Rhymes" (1876); "Farm Festivals" (1881); and "City Ballads" (1885).
