Deep brown covers with blindstamped title and decoration in faded gilt. Some light edge wear along with bumped corners. Expected aging as well as much writing in ink to former owner. Still square and securely bound, a very attractive copy. Flannery O'Connor completed work on her B.A. at Georgia State College for Women in three years, and this college annual for her middle year documents the range of her involvement in college life. Her name and photographs appear as a member of the sophomore class, the Town Girls' Club, the International Relations Club, The Corinthian (creative writing journal), the Colonnade (student newspaper on which O'Connor was Art Editor), and the Spectrum for which O'Connor "of cartoon fame, was the bright spot of our existence." Eight of O'Connor's linocut cartoons form section heads throughout the annual. This copy belonged to Bettie Sue "Cooter" Sumford, also a sophomore at the time. The volume bears many inscriptions from classmates to her throughout, though apparently nothing from O'Connor. A photograph of Sumford is laid in. ; B&W Linocut Illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 147 pages
