Roy McBride arrived in Minneapolis on Labor Day 1967 after
roaming around the Great Plains for two months looking for a
home. He spent his first year living at the downtown YMCA,
working as a mail clerk at Post-Graduate Medicine Magazine,
and hanging out at the Minneapolis Public Library.

One day in the spring of 1968, while reading a book of
poetry in the break room at work, an editor suggested he
check out a poetry reading at her church, The Unitarian
Society on Mount Curve. Another editor suggested he check
out her Alma Mater, Macalaster College in St. Paul. And he

At the Unitarian Society he met for the first time, Robert
Bly, Keith Gunderson, Michael Kincaid, Franklin Brainerd,
Michael Tchepkey and several other poets and people
interested in poetry. He liked it.

By Labor Day 1968, he was enrolled at Macalaster College.
Here he continued to meet great writers on the college
circuit, got involved with the college literary magazine,
and started writing seriously, himself.

In October 1968, the day after participating in an open
reading in the basement of the new chapel, a housekeeper
stopped him and said that he was a "real poet."

"Thanks sister! Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!"
