Foote’s personal papers, housed in DeGolyer Library, illustrate his prolific writing career, spanning six decades. Highlights include his Oscar-winning screenplays for To Kill a Mockingbird and Tender Mercies, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Young Man from Atlanta. Photographs, letters, programs, posters and other documents also will be on display.
The exhibit will be up during the Dallas-Fort Worth area Horton Foote Festival, which runs March 14 through May 1, 2011. For more information, call 214-768-3231.
