AMHERST, Mass. (AP) — Scholars at Amherst College in Massachusetts believe a collector may have what would be just the second known photo of Emily Dickinson.
The college says the collector, who wishes to remain anonymous, bought the photo in 1995 in Springfield, Mass. He brought it to the college’s archive and special collections staff in 2007, and they’ve been researching it since.
There’s strong evidence it’s Dickinson, including comparisons of high-resolution digital images of the newer photo with the known image, from 1847, said Mike Kelly, head of the archive and special collections department at Amherst College.
A book written in the 1950s was the first to propose Dickinson had a lesbian relationship with Turner, Kelly said.
