Loyola Notre Dame Library in Baltimore is hosting two events this year to commemorate Evelyn Waugh’s visits to the United States in the late 1940s.
- Evelyn Waugh Exhibit (February 27th to April 7th): “An Englishman in Catholic America,” a display of artifacts, documents, first editions, letters, and photographs (Ferguson Gallery, Main Level).
- Evelyn Waugh Conference (March 12th & 13th): Topics include Waugh’s U.S. travels, Waugh and U.S. writers, Waugh and film, Waugh’s Catholicism. Featured speaker will be Alexander Waugh, grandson of Evelyn Waugh, on Monday evening at 6 p.m. (Ridley Auditorium, Lower Level).
All are welcome, and registration is free. To register and to obtain more information about the events and local accommodations, email (click to email) or call (410) 617-6811.
Background reading: 2003 Notre Dame Magazine essay by Arthur Jones on Evelyn Waugh and his visits to Notre Dame and Loyola College.
Update (March 1st): Loyola has published on their university calendar detailed agendas for each day of the two-day conference, but strangely, the website is designed so that specific days on the calendar don’t have individual URLs and therefore linking to them is impossible. The most we can do is provide a link to Loyola’s events page. The conference takes place on March 12th and 13th.
