Stanton (1857-1927) was Georgia's first Poet Laureate. While he wrote much dialect verse, he tended toward sentimentality rather than more overt racism. Many of Stanton's poems were set to music. He collaborated on the song, "Jean" with well-known African-American composer, Harry T. Burleigh. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 6 pages
