                    Farewell, Faulkner stuff. Come back soon.

                    Lots of William Faulkner memorabilia, including his Nobel Prize for Literature, have been on loan and display at the University of Mississippi. Possibly no more, News Editor Jonathan Scott writes as he looks into the possibility of valuable items being sold at auction. His wish for all of us is that the next buyer sends them back where they belong – to Oxford, Ole Miss and Lafayette County. (April 11, 2013, Page 4A)
