             Biographical note 
             Jesse Hilton Stuart was born in W-Hollow near Riverton in Greenup County, Ky. The son of an illiterate farmer, Stuart is recognized as an outstanding regional author. In 1929 he received an A.B. degree from Lincoln Memorial University and attended Vanderbilt University in 1931-1932, studying there when "The Fugitives" were active. When his 19 stanza poem 
                 Elegy for Mitch Stewart  was published by the American Mercury magazine in 1933, Stuart credited Robert Penn Warren and Donald Davidson for encouraging him to submit his work. In 1954 Stuart was chosen by the Kentucky legislature as Poet Laureate of Eastern Kentucky.
