Biographical Note

Journalist, author, and playwright Ellis Nassour donated an extensive art and entertainment collection to Ole Miss "as a way to give back" in 2004. The 1964 University of Mississippi graduate said at a September ceremony at the J. D. Williams Library that he was motivated to donate the collection because "of a great lack of anything arts related" in Mississippi when he was growing up in Vicksburg.

The Mamie and Ellis Nassour Arts and Entertainment Collection—which was given in memory of Nassour's parents—contains videotapes, compact discs, vinyl LPs, audio cassettes, bound plays, books, and art pertaining to musical theater. "The Nassour collection gives the university a new breadth of research material, stretching from Hollywood to the New York stage and back to the South," says Center director Charles Reagan Wilson. "The primary sources on Patsy Cline, in particular, help support the Center's new emphasis on the study of Southern music."

A former New York Times and New York Daily News journalist, Nassour is the author of two books Patsy Cline (Leisure Books) and Honky Tonk Angel: The Intimate Story of Patsy Cline (St. Martin's). Ellis also coauthored Rock Opera: The Creation of Jesus Christ Superstar (Hawthorn Books).

Besides honoring his parents, Nassour's collection also salutes several people who influenced him at Ole Miss, including Chancellor and Mrs. John D. Williams, Tom S. Hines, Sam Talbert, and Mildred Spurrier Topp, Ellis's creative writing teacher, whose efforts brought "out the best of what talent I had," he says.
