The exhibit “Raintree County: A Celebration of the Life and Work of Ross Lockridge, Jr.” currently on display at Indiana University’s Lilly Library is coming to a close on May 19th. The exhibit explores and celebrates the life and work of Indiana author, Ross Lockridge, Jr., and the world of his iconic novel, Raintree County. Highlighted are about 400 of 75,000 items donated by the family to serve as an archive for use in the study of Lockridge’s only novel. Included are the controversial geoglyph drawn by the author for use as the book’s dust jacket, as well as the family’s Henry County Atlas which serves as a totem for the novel’s hero. Correspondent Doug Storm spoke with Cherry Williams, the Lilly Library Curator of Manuscripts and Eric Sandweiss, IU History professor and editor of the Indiana Magazine of History, about the scope of the exhibit for today’s daily local news feature report, courtesy of Interchange.
