Collection Description

Biographical/historical note

Stanley W. Lindberg served as editor of the Georgia Review from 1977 until his death in 2000. He is credited with transforming this regional literary magazine into an award-winning journal that regularly publishes the work of some of the nation's most renowned writers. In addition, he conceived and produced, or shared responsibility for, some of the most daring and stimulating cultural events the state of Georgia has hosted, including a celebration of Georgia's own heritage in creative writing—the "Roots in Georgia" Literary Symposium of 1985—and a remarkable international gathering of recipients of the Nobel Prize in Literature held in conjunction with the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. In 1986 Lindberg received the first Governor's Award in the Humanities. *New Georgia Encyclopedia.

Scope and Content

This collection consists of materials dating from 1977 through 1999 with a good deal of the documents coming from Stan W. Lindberg's time as editor of The Georgia review. These materials include correspondence and records of Lindberg's work with authors published (and not published) in the journal and his creation of the "Roots in Georgia" Literary Symposium in 1985. There are also administrative and business records that show, among other things, his interactions with UGA Administrators and the Main Library on campus. Other materials highlight his work as an English professor and as an organizer of the Cultural Olympiad held in conjunction with the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. These records emphasize his efforts with the Cultural Olympiad's Winterland and Nobel Laureate projects.
