A Poet and His City
From his arrival in Rochester in late 1945, Plutzik actively represented his art and his university in the community. He was a popular speaker off-campus as well as on, and the Archive reveals how much time he took from his writing to give to such affairs. He was an artist who felt responsibilities to his community on many levels; when he died, the community felt itself diminished.
