This is not news, but it is worthy to note. Buchanan bequeathed $2.5 million to Middle Tennessee State University. They have created an Honors College there. In addition to watching this video, check out From Nashborough to the Nobel Prize: The Buchanans of Tennessee (Twin Oakes Press*, 2012) by Reuben Kyle.
*TWIN OAKS PRESS (founded in 2010) is a small, independent press in Tennessee. Based on a contemporary concept that allows greater creative control to individual authors than is typical of more traditional presses, Twin Oaks expects to publish a limited and highly selective collection of works (fiction, non-fiction, including creative non-fiction, and poetry) by mature writers drawing upon a lifetime of professional and creative experience and research. The works will be, by and large, non-traditional, carefully conceived, thoroughly evaluated and peer reviewed by our editorial board prior to publication. All proceeds from the sale of this book go to the Middle Tennessee State University's Buchanan Fellowship Program.
