Austin Peay State University LogoThe widow of a deceased scholar who taught at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has chosen Austin Peay State University’s Woodward Library to be the home of her late husband’s D.H. Lawrence Collection.

Judy Cowan, wife of the late Lawrence scholar Dr. James Cowan, wanted to donate the collection to “a place where students and faculty would use it,” said Dr. Jill Franks, professor of English and president of the D.H. Lawrence Society of North America.

“This is an incredible offer and would honor our library very much indeed,” said Franks, who also is co-editor of the D.H. Lawrence Review. “I would try to offer my Lawrence seminar more often to make sure good use was made of this collection.”

These items, along with a photograph of D.H. Lawrence, are part of the D.H. Lawrence collection in the APSU Woodward Library. (Melony Shemberger | APSU Public Relations and Marketing)
