Eudora Welty

Born this day in 1909: Eudora Welty (1909–2001), great American short-story writer and novelist; winner of numerous awards, including several O. Henry awards, the National Medal for Literature, the American Book Award, and a Pulitzer Prize. Welty was also an accomplished photographer (including a WPA photographer), a pursuit supplanted by her writing career.
