About WBH@100

The William Bradford Huie@100 project, inspired by the recent gift of Huie materials to the W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library at The University of Alabama from his widow Martha Huie, is a celebration of Huie’s life and work.   WBH@100 is a multi-faceted and interdisciplinary look at the history and culture of much of the 20th century through the eyes of one brilliant writer.

William Bradford Huie graduated from The University of Alabama in 1930, and from his days as a student, through his long and varied career as an author and journalist, he was able to find a great story and bring forth the truth.

This website will serve as a permanent gathering place for ideas, scholarship, and information on Huie and his legacy.

Collaborating partners in this exciting WBH@100 venture include University Libraries, New College, The College of Arts and Sciences, College of Communication and Information Sciences, the departments of Journalism, Telecommunication and Film, American Studies, History, English, and the program in Creative Writing, African American Studies program, the Bankhead Visiting Writers Series, The Summersell Center for the Study of the South, the Americanists interdisciplinary Faculty group, The Alabama Center for the Book, Tuscaloosa Arts Council, and the Southern Literary Trail.  Groups or individuals with an interest in William Bradford Huie and his work are encouraged to contact Jessica Lacher-Feldman, Curator of Rare Books and Special Collections at the W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library, The University of Alabama.
