Rose Hartwick Thorpe (1850 - 1939)
Rose Hartwick Thorpe (July 18, 1850 – July 19, 1939) was an American poet. Among her poems were Curfew Must Not Ring Tonight. The poem was written while Thorpe resided in Litchfield, Michigan, a small rural town. A bell in the center of the town commemorates the poem and Thorpe's time spent in the town. Litchfield has adopted the title of the poem as something of a symbol, having firetrucks and city website show the symbol of a bell reading "Curfew Shall not Ring Tonight".
