The following link leads to a fine short essay by Edward Dupuy published
this past week in /Commonweal/ to which I would like to call to your
Dupuy is a scholar (and gentleman) who served as dean of St. Joseph
Abbey and Seminary College in Covington, La., where Percy is buried, and
also organized the previous Walker Percy Symposium along with St.
Tammany Parish Library for many years. He is the author of
/Autobiography in Walker Percy: Repetition, Recovery, and Redemption/
(LSU Press, 1996)
Today, Dupuy serves as founding dean at the Southwest School of Art in
San Antonio (https://www.swschool.org/). He studied for his PhD at LSU
under John R. May, former Walker Percy Project board member.
Dupuy is to be recognized and thanked for his many contributions to
academic and public understanding of Percy and his works. In this case
his short essay features a photograph of Percy formidably sitting at his
desk in his study.
