Roland Flint (1931-2001)
Born and raised in Park River, North Dakota, Flint has been praised as "a secular poet who was able to find an evidence of God's grace everywhere." Many of his poems include people and images from Walsh County where he grew up. Nationally recognized, Dr. Flint taught English at Georgetown University from 1968 until his retirement as professor of English in 1997. He was named Poet Laureate of Maryland by the governor in September 1995, a position he resigned due to poor health in 2000.
