Author, poet. Jesse Hilton Stuart was born in W-Hollow near Riverton in Greenup County, Ky. in 1907.  The son of an illiterate farmer, Stuart has been recognized as an outstanding regional author.  He was the first of his family to graduate from high school and in 1929 he received an A. B. degree from Lincoln Memorial University (Harrogate, Tn.).  After graduation he enjoyed a distinguished career as a school teacher, principal and eventually superintendent of Greenup County Schools.  He achieved fame, however, as a poet and writer of short stories, novels and articles. Stuart was honored by Lincoln Memorial University in 1942 with a Ph.D. in Human Letters and in 1954  was named poet laureate of eastern Kentucky by the Kentucky legislature.  Jesse Stuart married Naomi Dean Norris and they had one daughter, Jane. This collection of Jesse Stuart consists mainly of correspondence with Mark Bittner. The material, which was generated between 1951 and 1973, was a result of the writer's contacts through their affiliation with Lincoln Memorial University.  The correspondence between Bittner and Stuart contain biographical material on Stuart in addition to references to addresses he made at Lincoln Memorial University and the University of Pittsburgh.  Throughout the correspondence, Stuart mentions his works-in-progress, political issues and personal matters. Arranged chronologically. Stuart, Jesse, 1907- Bittner, Mark. Lincoln Memorial University.
