Welty & MDAH

In 1957 Eudora Welty donated a collection of her manuscripts, papers, and photographs to the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. She continued to donate materials to MDAH throughout the rest of her life. Today the Eudora Welty Collection is an important archival collection, visited by scholars and students from around the world. In 1986 Welty made the decision that the state should have her house at her death.

The Welty House, besides offering regular tours of the house and garden, will offer year-round programs and exhibits, sponsor scholarships, awards, and publications, and serve as an inspiring locale for important regional literary events.
