About the Collection
Pat Warde was an integral part of the intellectual and political life of UNT and the entire Denton community. Warde’s husband Bill established the Pat Warde Memorial Collection of Southern Letters for the UNT Libraries in 1992, in memory of his wife’s love of literature and her dedication to the highest ideals incorporated in the great literature of the South.
Replenished by ongoing contributions, the Collection is a living entity consisting of first and rare editions of important southern authors, as well as critical and biographical works on authors represented in the Collection.
The Collection is particularly strong in the works of Eudora Welty, Katherine Anne Porter, and Flannery O’Connor. Through the endowment, first editions, autographed copies, limited editions, and association copies of various titles are made available to those visiting Special Collections.
