Baxter Hathaway

In 1947 Baxter Hathaway developed Cornell’s creative writing program within the English Department. He also established the magazine Epoch, a literary quarterly staffed by the English department. After retiring from teaching in 1976, Baxter founded Ithaca House and began a new career as publisher, editor, and printer.

Pynchon took a course with Baxter at Cornell in 1959. According to Kit Hathaway, Baxter’s son, Tom was a frequent visitor to the Hathaway residence at Cornell.
