Carl Sandburg's Bedroom

Carl wanted his workroom and bedroom located on the west side of the house because he knew that he would be working throughout the night and sleeping in the morning and he did not want the rising sun to disturb this routine.

After waking in mid-morning, he exercised, doing calisthenics using the Indian clubs seen in the room, listening to classical or folk music on his phonograph player, and read a little before coming downstairs for the day.  Clippings of interesting articles and images from magazines hang pinned to the wall.
