The New York Times reported "Nevermore? Mystery Visitor Misses Poe's Birthday."
BALTIMORE (AP) -- Is this tradition ''nevermore''?
A mysterious visitor who left roses and cognac at the grave of Edgar Allan Poe each year on the writer's birthday failed to show early Tuesday, breaking with a ritual that began more than 60 years ago.
''I'm confused, befuddled,'' said Jeff Jerome, curator of the Poe House and Museum. ''I don't know what's going on.''
The tradition dates back to at least 1949, according to newspaper accounts from the era, Jerome said. Since then, an unidentified person has come every Jan. 19 to leave three roses and a half-bottle of cognac at Poe's grave in a church cemetery in downtown Baltimore.
