Fellow Poundians,
     The Ezra Pound Association in Hailey, Idaho, has a chance to purchase
the birthplace of EP, but the window of opportunity is narrow and high.
After a complex probate dispute, a court has ruled that the Association
may purchase the property IF it can come up with $255,000 by February 1,
1998.  Even with several generous pledges, the Association is a long way
from meeting this goal.  It is now trying to identify either a major angel
or an institutional purchaser such as a university who might be interested
in turning the home into a center for conferences, visiting scholars, and
the like.
     If you can help with contributions or ideas, please contact
                Jennifer Wilson
                The Ezra Pound Association
                P.O. Box 1492
                Hailey, Idaho 83333
                (208) 788-4700
Obviously, time is of the essence.  Thanks for your interest and
                                Hugh Witemeyer
