Historical Note
The author known as Sherwood Bonner was born Katharine Sherwood Bonner on February 26, 1849 in Holly Springs, MS. The daughter of a physician, she married Edward McDowell when she turned twenty-one. Two years after her marriage, however, Bonner moved to Boston on her own to pursue a writing career. Bonner placed several of her stories and letters with newspapers and periodicals, and her novel Like Unto Like appeared in 1878. Several other volumes and reprints of her stories appeared posthumously. The author died on July 22, 1883 in Holly Springs, MS.

Scope and Contents Note
In 2004, Dr. Anne Gowdy donated to Special Collections the research material she had accumulated while working on her dissertation "The Uncollected Works of Sherwood Bonner (Katharine Sherwood Bonner McDowell, 1849-1883): An Annotated Edition" (University of Mississippi; 1996) and her book A Sherwood Bonner Sampler, 1869 -- 1884: What a Bright, Educated, Witty, Lively, Snappy Young Woman Can Say on a Variety of Topics (Knoxville, TN: University of Tennessee Press, 2000).
The Gowdy/Bonner Collection consists of three boxes. The first box contains copies of Bonner's published non-fiction and poetry, as well as a number of other primary sources related to Bonner. Both the nonfiction and the poetry are subdivided by type, and the material therein is organized chronologically by the first published appearance of each piece. Folders may also contain copies of each title's subsequent printings as well as Dr. Gowdy's typed and handwritten notes. Box 2 consists of copies and notes of Bonner's fiction -- subdivided into short stories and novels. Again, the arrangement is chronological within each category. The third box contains copies and Dr. Gowdy's notes on secondary material related to Bonner.
