Glenn Foss was a photographer, calligrapher, wood-carver, and poet. He left school at fourteen to work as a "printer's devil" for a local newspaper, but continued to study in his free time. After he retired, he began to carve canes that he and his wife used for hiking. He also attended poetry classes at Hunter College in New York and described poetry as just another "trade" to be learned (letter to William Root, Hunter College, 1990).
