Robert W. Watson
The University Libraries join with the campus and the literary community in mourning the death earlier this week of Robert Watson, a member of our faculty from 1953 until his retirement in 1987. Bob activated the MFA Writing Program at UNCG in 1964, and founded the Greensboro Review the next year. His papers are in our Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections. Here is his obituary.
