Southeast gets records of Faulkner's travels

Records of author William Faulkner's trips to Japan, Greece, Venezuela and five other foreign countries have been obtained by Southeast Missouri State University's Center for Faulkner Studies. The 1950s trips were made on behalf of the United States Information Service, according to a press release. The official government records comprise nearly 400 pages. Dr. Robert Hamblin, director of the Faulkner Center, noted in a press release that "Faulkner's contributions as a U.S. cultural ambassador have been little studied by Faulkner biographers." The records are copies obtained from the University of Arkansas.
