Southern Methodist University's DeGolyer Library has acquired a
major collection of the works of Southwest writer and artist Paul Hor-
gan. The collection consists of over 2,300 items, including all of Horgan's
books in first and subsequent editions, his contributions to books, peri-
odical publications, criticism, translations, artwork, correspondence,
and manuscripts. It was collected over a thirty-five-year period by Sally
Zaiser of San Francisco. "This is undoubtedly the finest collection de-
voted to Paul Horgan in existence, and it fits perfectly within the con-
text of the DeGolyer Library with our emphasis on the history and cul-
ture of the trans-Mississippi West," said David Farmer, head of the
library and a longtime member of the Association. "With this collec-
tion, SMU has entered a new phase in library acquisition and the devel-
opment of its resources for academic research." Paul Horgan, one of
the major figures in American arts and letters, was born in 1903 and
spent many of his younger years in the Southwest, particularly New
Mexico. Out of this experience he has written numerous works of his-
tory, fiction (both novels and short stories), and essays. He is the only
writer identified with the Southwest who has been awarded two Pulit-
zer Prizes, the first for Great River: The Rio Grande in North American His-
tory in 1955 and the second for Lamy of Santa Fe, a biography of Jean
Baptist Lamy, first archbishop of Santa Fe, in 1976. In addition, Hor-
gan is an accomplished artist whose watercolors have been featured in
exhibitions at the Amon Carter Museum in Forth Worth, the Beinecke
Library at Yale, and the Museum of New Mexico. The cover of the
April 1989 Quarterly featured a Horgan watercolor.
