The Associated Press recently ran a great article after the Dead Poet Guy reached his 300th poet's grave. The reporter let it be known that:
"Skold is hopeful he can visit 63 more burial sites he's identified in the Northeast this fall. But to get to 500 will require some additional funding, he said.
He's hoping to find a patron of poetry to fund his travels. In exchange, Skold will donate his videotapes, photographs and items he's collected from the gravesites to a museum or other institution in the name of the patron.
"What I have is becoming a cultural archaeological resource of the poets' graves," he said."
