Faulkner Center Increases its Scholarly Offerings in Cape

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - The Center for Faulkner Studies at Southeast Missouri State University adds to its collection of papers about the Nobel Prize-winning author.

The center in Cape Girardeau has received copies of hundreds of pages of State Department records.  They relate to William Faulkner's visits to eight foreign countries during the 1950s.

Faulkner went abroad as part of a cultural program, doing readings and giving interviews.

The Faulkner Center's director, Robert Hamblin, says it took him two years to discover where the papers were.

He says the center got copies of the records with help from Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson and the University of Arkansas, where the originals are kept.
