More information about Final Jeopardy:
Famed poet Robert Frost found academic routine difficult, leading to his dropping out of both Dartmouth and Harvard. He attempted to support his poetry by raising poultry, botany, and teaching, but it was not until he sold his New England farm and moved to London in 1911 that his writing career took off. Within two years of his arrival in England, both A Boy’s Will and North of Boston were published. Frost’s accolades include the aforementioned two Dartmouth honorary degrees, four Pulitzer Prizes, and a multitude of other honorary degrees. He was also invited to read at John F. Kennedy’s inauguration two years before his 1963 death.
