Sherwood Anderson Dissertations, Theses, Research Papers 1924-1995

By Ray Lewis White

Whatever Sherwood Anderson thought of the many students and teachers who wrote to ask him for books, autographs, advice, recommendations, and explanations, the author was fortunate that his life and his writings did attract the curiosity and the energy of numerous academic individuals. For without the enthusiastic teaching of Anderson’s fiction in classrooms from secondary school through graduate school and without the continuing scholarly debate over Anderson’s proper historical and critical whereabouts, even Winesburg, Ohio might have gone out of print and Anderson might have become only another once-promising Midwestern author, a name among others in lists of influences on Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Faulkner.

But Anderson even before his death in 1941 became the subject of the graduate-school theses and dissertations that would form the basis of continuing analysis, biography, and bibliography. Anderson theses and dissertations frequently became published volumes (Fagin, Sutton, Hoffman, Mann, Taylor, Ingram, Curry, Fanning, Hilfer, Idema, and Bruyère, among others); and the early theses written by Dinsmoor, Davenport, and Kintner and the dissertations written by Sutton and Phillips even yet aid biographers in their discoveries. The critical judgments of Fagin, Hoffman, Hilton, and Thurston pioneered lengthy and thorough analyses; and the bibliographical thesis completed by Gozzi in 1947 actually founded secondary Anderson bibliography. Gozzi’s catalogue of Anderson publications in periodicals inspired (and formed much content in) the Sheehy / Lohf bibliography (1960), a book which led to the secondary bibliography of White (1977); the short-fiction guide by Small (1994); and the continuing lists of Anderson studies in The Winesburg Eagle. Thus I have compiled this new list of dissertations (for doctoral degrees), theses (for master’s degrees), and undergraduate honors and seminar essays (for bachelor’s degrees) that have found their way into permanent college and university collections and that are worthy of discovery and study by students of Anderson and American literature. I attempt here to correct errors in previous lists of Anderson studies (including errors in my own publications), and I think that this record of 227 entries at least doubles the number of dissertations, theses, and research papers hitherto enumerated.
