STREET, Alfred Billings (1811-81). An American author, born at Poughkeepsie, N. Y. He studied law and began practice at Monticello, N. Y., but in 1839 removed to Albany, where he became editor of The Northern Light, and was, for the latter half of his life, State librarian. His poems deal with the sights and sounds of the woodland and the life of the more primitive days of the settlement of America. Among his verses are: The Burning of Schenectady, and Other Poems (1842); Drawings and Tintings (1844); Fugitive Poems (1846); and Frontenac; or, the Atotarho of the Iroquois (1849), a poetical romance. His chief prose works are: Woods and Waters (1860); The Indian Pass (1869); Lake and Mountain; or, Autumn in the Adirondacks (1870); Eagle Pine; or, Sketches of a New York Frontier Village (1871); and one learned work, A Digest of Taxation in the United States (1863).
