Thomas Pinney received his PhD in English from Yale in 1960 and taught there for a year before going to Pomona College, Claremont, California, where he taught for the next 35 years. He is now retired, and delighted to return to Yale on a Beinecke Visiting Fellowship in October, 2009. He is at work on a complete edition of the poems of Rudyard Kipling and will make use of Yale’s splendid collection of Kipling, now one of the finest in the world through the recent gift of the collection formed by David Alan Richards (Yale B.A., 1967; J.D., 1972).
The exhibition gallery is closed while the library's building is under renovation.
