  Album of Destiny  
  Album of Destiny was Jesse Stuartís third book of poetry. In February 1933 Stuart picked up an old family photograph album, and, while turning the pages and looking at the images of the people, he thought of a book with “these characters going though this album of destiny,” which was designed “to cover he sweep of humanity upon this earth in 444 poems” (Richardson, Jesse, 219).

Henry Lee Shattuck was a prominent Boston attorney and onetime member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives. He was born in 1879 and died in 1971.
