Horace Traubel, and his wife Anne, were buried in Harleigh Cemetery, the same cemetery as Whitman. I like the Traubel headstone, a large natural rock engraved with their names and splattered in magnificent green lichen. Notice the wonderful green carpet of moss at the base of the stone.
Whitman scholars have Traubel to thank for his enormous contribution of furthering the knowledge of – and about – Walt Whitman. I give great thanks to Traubel and cannot help but feel a personal connection to him from reading the With Walt Whitman in Camden series.
To anyone interested in Walt Whitman, no visit to Camden, NJ would be complete without paying respects to the resting place of Horace Traubel.
