Jonathan Reichert, UB professor emeritus of physics, who has
donated to UB a rare collection of materials from poet Robert
Frost, was interviewed on NPR’s Morning Edition on the
50th anniversary of the poet’s death.
. Frost was a family friend of the Reicherts, and although
Jonathan Reichert was nearly 60 years younger than Frost, they had
a meaningful friendship. “I wasn’t afraid to talk to
him,” Reichert said, “and he, I think, was very willing
to engage with me. I was very lucky in that way.” The
interview was heard on NPR stations across the country, including
WBFO-FM. The Associated Press also distributed an article on
the collection, which appeared in news outlets that include The
Wall Street Journal.
