Historical Note

Discovered in a broom closet at Faulkner’s home, Rowan Oak, 31 August 1970 by James W. Webb and Mr. Beverley Smith, the manuscripts
comprising the Rowan Oak Papers were stored in a vault at the University of Mississippi and examined by Mrs. Estelle Faulkner,
October 1971. Upon Mrs. Faulkner’s death, 11 May 1972, ownership of the papers transfered to Jill Summers. Upon direction
by Mrs. Summers, the manuscripts were microfilmed by the University of Virginia Libraries as an addition to their Faulkner
collections, accessioned 24 February 1981. The University of Mississippi purchased the Rowan Oak papers from Mrs. Summers,
8 July 1982, forming the cornerstone of its Faulkner collection.
