Abstract:

Edward Clark Dobson (1939- ), a higher education professor and administrator, developed a warm personal relationship with Katherine Anne Porter that began in 1972 and endured until her death in 1980. During their relationship, they frequently attended Washington, D.C., area concerts and social events. Dobson began collecting Katherine Anne Porter items in 1976, when Porter gave Dobson a copy of her A Christmas Story as a Christmas gift. The collection consists of correspondence, mostly written to and from Katherine Anne Porter; publications; photographs; and memorabilia, which document Porter's literary career and relationship with Dobson.
