Take me to the archived exhibition.

The acquisition by the University of Delaware Library of a large collection of the papers of the American writer Paul Bowles is the culmination of several years of persistent effort by Library staff. Many friends of Bowles have welcomed our pursuit of a shared goal: assuring that the papers of one of the major writers of the twentieth century be available for research by those exploring the wellsprings of his creativity.

A Morris Library exhibition that was to honor Paul Bowles on the occasion of his ninetieth birthday has become both a memorial tribute to him and a celebration of his genius. Highlights of his career as revealed in his published and unpublished writings are showcased.

This exhibition was on display in the Special Collections Gallery from August 22-December 12, 2000.
