Page was elected to the New Hampshire state legislature in 1933 and again in 1939.
Compiler of anthologies of verse such as British Poets of the Nineteenth Century and The Chief American Poets, Page also published verses, essays, and stories in numerous periodicals. In 1906, writing of his activities to his fellow Harvard alumni, he stated: "I have two volumes of verse nearly ready, but find little time to give to completing them and doubt if they will be published until after I am dead!"
Page also translated many French works, including A Voyage to the Moon, by Cyrano de Bergerac and The Man Who Married a Dumb Wife by Anatole France. He published a well-regarded translation of eight plays by Molière in 1908; of these, Tartuffe, or the Hypocrite is available online from Project Gutenberg.
^Donald M. Frame in the introduction to his own Molière translation writes: "Curtis Hidden Page has translated eight well-chosen plays (Putnam, 1908, 2 vols.) which include three verse comedies done into unrhymed verse. Though it sometimes lacks sparkle, his version is always intelligent and responsible." (--Donald M. Frame, trans., Tartuffe and Other Plays by Molière, NY: Signet, 1967, ISBN 0-451-53033-0, p. xiii.)
