Did you know at Digital Maryland, you can explore the genius of poet and author Edgar Allan Poe, who called Baltimore home for many years, through the Enoch Pratt Free Library’s collection of letters and artifacts from his life. The most Poe-etic artifact in the collection dedicated to a man best known for the macabre? Perhaps this framed lock of hair from both Poe and his young wife, Virginia Clemm Poe.
