Death: Sep. 3, 2003

Poet.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, his first book of poems won both a Pulitizer Prize for Poetry and the National Book Award in 1962. During his lifetime, he published seven books of poems and was a Fellow at the American Academy in Rome from 1962 to 1963. He won literary awards from the Guggenheim and Rockefeller Foundations, the Poetry Society of America, the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, and the Lannan Foundation. Dugan won a second National Book Award for his poems in 2001. Alan Dugan was married to artist Judith Shahn, daughter of artist Ben Shahn, whom he met at Olivet College in Michigan. He and his wife held Marxist views at Olivet College and left the school in support of a professor who was fired for leftist leanings. They finished their degrees at Mexico City College and then returned to the Village in New York City where they lived until they moved to Truro on Cape Cod in the 60's. Dugan guest lectured periodically at colleges. He was one of the original founders of the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown and died on Cape Cod.
