    Pacific [v2 #3, April 1947] ed. Mary Rolfe (Oakland, CA: Mills College, 50¢, 48+4pp, 5½" x 8½")
    I assume the “Robert Barlow” with a poem on page 17 is “the” Robert Barlow (friend of HPL) and I assume the poem is already known about and reprinted (it’s not fantastic), but since there are no authorial notes in that issue I can’t make the connection for sure. Details supplied by Denny Lien.
