This exhibition, James Dickey at 70: A Tribute, was mounted by the University of South Carolina Libraries' Division of Special Collections in recognition of James Dickey's seventieth birthday, of his 25 years at the University, and of the publication of his third novel, To the White Sea, and was an aspect of the larger September 1993 celebration. The exhibition was designed to complement the celebration's activities and to provide a sense of the development of the artist's oeuvre and contained examples of Dickey's fiction, poetry, essays and interviews, and children's books.


This catalog accompanied this exhibition, September 17-November 29, 1993, which complemented activities celebrating James Dickey's life and work. Special thanks go to Drs. Matthew J. Bruccoli and Donald Greiner for their suggestions and for the contributions that they have made to the exhibit through loans from their private collections. The catalog was compiled by Ms. Amy Fuqua.
