Back in 2000 George Killough, then an English professor at the College of St. Scholastica, edited the book “Minnesota Diary, 1942-46” the journal of Sinclair Lewis during the time he lived in Duluth.
I met Killough, which might seem unsurprising if you’re not a university professor (“don’t you all know each other?”) and surprising if you are (we don’t talk to each other much across institutions). If I remember right, Killough had an office next to Jill Dupont, one of my fave colleagues at CSS.
Should the literary history of Duluth I’m working on include figures who leave the town (the way a pop music history of Duluth will inevitably include Dylan, I guess)? And should it include faculty, both faculty creative writers and faculty scholarly writers?
