Special Collections, Marshall University, November 18, 1975.
  Jesse Stuart signing books at Marshall University  
  On “Jesse Stuart Day” Stuart inscribed all the books of the Jesse Stuart Collection that had not been previously autographed. He typically inscribed the books with the following words, “Autographed for the definitive Jesse Stuart Collection Marshall University - Jesse Stuart Feb, 18th 1976.” Inexplicably, he dated all his inscriptions February 18, 1976, although the day was November 18, 1975.  A few of the books of the collection can be seen to Stuart’s left.
