About John Chandler Griffin

About the author: Dr. John Chandler Griffin holds the title Distinguished Professor Emeritus with the University of South Carolina, and has authored nine books over the past decade. His 1996 biography of Thomas Wolfe (Memories of Thomas Wolfe) won the History Book of the Year Award from the North Carolina Historical Society, but he says that this work on Jean Toomer is by far his most ambitious achievement. Following thirty years of dedicated service, Governor Jim Hodges recently named Griffin to the Order of the Silver Crescent, the highest award the state of South Carolina can make to any of her citizens.
