On May 5, 1885 Frost's father dies of tuberculosis. The family moved to Lawrence, Massachusetts to live with grandparents. In the following year the family moved again, this time to Salem Depot, New Hampshire. Frost's mother began teaching and Robert and Jeanie enter the fifth grade. During 1888 and 1889, Robert Lee Frost graduated one year ahead of the rest of his class from Lawrence High School.
Frost’s father, who named the boy after his idle Robert E. Lee, met his wife in Pennsylvania while they were both teaching at Bucknell Academy. William Prescott Frost Jr. and his wife Isabelle Moodie married and moved to San Francisco where Robert was born. William Frost was a Harvard graduate and was the city editor for the San Francisco Daily Evening Post. Frost’s family moved a good amount and his father, who had serious drinking problems, died of tuberculosis in 1885 and left his mother and younger sister with very little money after burial expenses. The Frost’s returned east to live with the paternal grandparents, but soon moved to Amherst, New Hampshire to stay with his great-aunt.
His mother, Isabelle Moodie Frost, came into the United State when she was 12 years old. Frost was born a year after his parents had gotten married. After Frost's father had died in 1885, he moved with his family to New England where he attended Lawrence High School. "Frost had published several poems in the school magazine and was named class poet." "He graduated in 1892, sharing valedictorian honors with Elinor White, to whom he became engaged."
After college in 1895 he married to a wonderful woman by the name Elinor Miriam White. Robert Frost and his wife Elinor both taught school until about 1897 when Frost went to Harvard College for about two years. After Harvard he returned to Lawrence with his wife because he had health problems. Soon after, Robert and Elinor Had their second child. As the years past they had decided to move on a farm right over the Massachusetts border in New Hampshire.
Then in 1895 Frost married Elinor White whom he had been co-valedictorians with in high school. Then between 1897 and 1899 Frost felt the need to go back to college he attended Harvard as a special student only to leave without a degree. Over the next ten years he would write more poetry. Frost would live on and operate a farm in Derry, New Hampshire that his grandfather had purchase for him with the condition he live there for a minimum of ten years. He would also take a teaching position at Derry’s Pinkerton Academy to receive another form of income.
After he graduated, Frost’s grandparents ordered him to attend Dartmouth College, but he dropped out after seven weeks (DeFusco 15-16). Then Frost decided to work at a wool mill to save enough money to marry Elinor White. In the winter of 1895, at the age of twenty-one, Elinor and Frost were married.

Adolf's other interest in school was his art class. Adolf's father was very upset with him when Adolf told him he wasn't joining the civil service and instead he was going to become an artist. Alois and Adolf's relationship went down hill from there. The conflict was finally resolved in 1903 when Adolf's dad died. Two years while on vacation Adolf developed a lung infection and used this to drop out of school.
Frost stayed at Dartmouth for less than a term, then left (5). This caused a fit with Elinor, she wanted him to finish college and wouldn’t marry him until he graduated college. Frost went back to Massachusetts to teach and to work at a variety of jobs like delivering newspapers and factory labor. He hated these jobs with a passion, finally feeling his true calling as a poet (4). The poet favored Ralph Waldo Emerson, and read many of his works (6).
After his father’s death of tuberculosis in 1885, when young Frost was 11, the family left California and settled in Massachusetts. Frost attended high school there, entered Dartmouth College, but remained less than one semester. Returning to Massachusetts, he taught school and worked in a mill and as a newspaper reporter. A year later he married Elinor White, with whom he had shared valedictorian honors at Lawrence High School. From 1897 to 1899, he attended Harvard College as a special student but left without a degree.
