Biographical Information

Laurel, Mississippi, native Hunter McKelva “Mack” Cole’s (b. 1938) interest in writer Eudora Welty was evident even as a student at Millsaps College in Jackson, from which he graduated in 1960. He was the first to research Welty’s book reviews, publishing a list in 1963. Cole taught English at Jones County Junior College before joining the University Press of Mississippi. He was associate director and marketing manager of the Press when he retired in 2003. The Press published many editions of Welty’s works during Cole’s time there and Cole and Welty became good friends. Cole is the editor of three books by Welty: Country Churchyards, On William Hollingsworth, and  On William Faulkner, and helped compile the images for  Photographs. He has also written articles on Welty for publications including  The New York Times Book Review. The character of Judge McKelva in Welty’s novel  The Optimist’s Daughter was named after Cole. His book,  The Legs Murder Scandal (2010), is about a 1935 murder in Laurel which also interested Welty.

Eudora Alice Welty (1909-2001), author and photographer, was born and lived most of her life in Jackson, Mississippi. She won the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for The Optimist’s Daughter.

Scope and Contents

The Hunter Cole Eudora Welty collection documents the literary life of Eudora Welty with a particular focus on the books published by the University Press of Mississippi. The collection contains correspondence, manuscripts, interviews, publicity and promotional materials, photographs, publications, audiovisual materials and other memorabilia.

Series 1, Correspondence, is a small group which includes mainly correspondence between Cole and others on Welty-related matters but also a number of letters from Welty to Cole and copies of some Welty letters.

The second series, Publications: Manuscripts, proofs, etc., focuses predominately on publications published by the University Press of Mississippi during Cole’s tenure whose subject is Welty or were written by Welty. Proofs of pages, jackets and illustrations along with unbound cases are included. Some pre-publication material referring to Welty’s book of photographs Country Churchyards is of interest.

Cole collected first editions of Welty’s books as well as publications which contained introductions or other writings by Welty, along with books about Welty and her corpus. Series 3, Publications: Books, features a variety of editions of Welty’s work, many of which are signed or inscribed by Welty.

Series 4, Publications: Articles, reviews, newsletters, is a large series because Cole tried to collect copies of as many articles by Welty or about Welty which were published in journals, magazines and newspapers from the 1940s to the late 2000s. These range from the scholarly to interviews given by Welty to reports on Welty’s activities in Jackson and thus give a good insight into Welty’s public life and her growing literary reputation Welty’s long connections with The New York Times Book Review and  The New Yorker are illustrated in the series through book reviews and articles. Also included are copies of newsletters by organizations dedicated to promoting and commemorating Welty.

The fifth series, Publicity and promotion, contains posters and promotional materials publicizing Welty’s works and plays based on them, and exhibits and conferences about Welty. These include materials and catalogs produced by the University Press of Mississippi, materials related to the exhibit Passionate Observer: Eudora Welty Among Artists of the Thirties, and brochures promoting the Eudora Welty House.

Series 6, Miscellany, is an eclectic group of memorabilia and ephemera collected by Cole which includes programs, invitations, brochures, and commemorative items. There are transcripts of television appearances by Welty on William F. Buckley's Firing Line and the MacNeil/Lehrer Newshour, along with some items about her friend William Maxwell and a few genealogical documents.

Cole not only collected images of Welty but took photographs of her. The seventh series, Visual Images, contains photographic prints, photocopies and published images which he collected in a binder. Notable items are a limited edition print of a drawing of Welty’s house by Michael W. Hataway, and an illustration by Mildred Nungester Wolfe which was included in the 1988 edition of Morgana: Two Stories from ‘The Golden Apples’.

The final series is audiovisual materials, both published and recorded by Cole. The audio cassettes include readings by Welty and an interview with Dick Cavett. The reel-to-reel tape is a recording of a symposium held at Millsaps College in 1960 when Cole was still a student there, while the video tapes are interviews of Welty conducted by Cole and others.
