Emily Mitchell Wallace Harvey, professionally known as Emily Wallace, was a noted scholar of the modernist poetry movement of the late 19th century and 20th century in Europe and America. Her particular areas of concentration were the works of Ezra Pound and William Carlos Williams, as well as the emergence of nontraditional verse and abstract art. She obtained her doctorate from Bryn Mawr College in 1965 and taught at or was associated with many colleges and universities in the United States, including Bryn Mawr, Swarthmore, Cooper Union and Yale. Throughout her academic career, Dr. Wallace organized conferences and created multimedia lectures for audiences worldwide. She was a prolific writer and editor of scholarly journals. She was a member of the Modern Language Association, the Association of Literary Scholars, Critics and Writers, the Ezra Pound Society and the William Carlos Williams Society. At the time of her death, she was editing a book about William Carlos Williams containing photographs from the Williams family archive and biographical sketches written by his son, William Eric Williams. Mrs. Harvey was married to Gregory Merrill Harvey, a prominent Philadelphia lawyer who shared her interest in the modernist poets and the arts. The Harveys were ardent supporters of many cultural institutions in the Philadelphia area and elsewhere.
