The Prize

I just stumbled across this earlier today. The Memphis Commercial Appeal runs a rotating gallery of historic photos from its files. This one from December 1950, shows William Faulkner and his daughter Jill saying good-bye to wife and mother Estelle at the Memphis Airport. They were boarding a plane to begin their journey to Stockholm where Faulkner accepted the Nobel Prize for Literature.
