WELTY (EUDORA) COLLECTION
Series 41. Awards, Honors and Tributes

1951-2001; n.d.
6.00 cubic ft.

This series documents honors and tributes bestowed on Eudora Welty. It includes diplomas and certificates of her honorary degrees, local, national, and international awards and honors, and memorabilia of these events. This series also contains documents relating to occasions held in her honor and special events that she attended. Since being invited to speak or teach may also be considered an honor, memorabilia of conferences at which Welty spoke or read, and lectures or classes which she gave, are included as well.

This series is generally organized by the awarding entity, and then by year. However, if the occasion is a special event, such as the birthday of Eudora Welty or Thomas Jefferson, the material will be organized by the name of the person celebrated, or of the event. Whenever possible, both the location and dates of the events to which the documents and memorabilia relate will be listed in the appropriate columns below.
