Historical Note

Stuart Wright (1948-) attended Roxboro (N.C.) High School and Wake Forest University, where he received B.A. degrees in German and Music. He received his master's degree in Southern Studies in 1973 and a second master's degree in U.S. History in 1980, both from Wake Forest University. In the late 1970s and through much of the 1980s, Wright served as Lecturer in Education at Wake Forest.

Since 1977 Wright has published, in the form of broadsides and limited editions, poetry and essays by A. R. Ammons, Fred Chappell, James Dickey, William Goyen, George Garrett, and Eudora Welty, among others. He also compiled bibliographies of several writers, including Andrew Lytle, Donald Davies, Reynolds Price, Robert Morgan, Dickey, and Ammons. He also edited The Conference Letters of Benjamin H. Freeman and The Recollections of A. D. Reynolds. With F. D. Bridgewater, he translated The Great Cavalry Battle of Brandy Station by Heres von Borcke and Justus Scheibert. Wright was a member of the Grolier Club from 1980 to 1998, when he moved to England.
