One of Nashville’s proudest legacies is that we are the cradle of the Civil Rights Movement. VUP’s Civil Rights titles range from documenting local events to tracing the growth of the Movement from here.
Good Friends and Good Neighbors
Over the years, Vanderbilt University Press has had fruitful partnerships with other local institutions—including the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Cheekwood Estate and Gardens, the Frist Art Museum, and the Nashville Civic Design Center.
Great Works of Art
Vanderbilt University Press and the Frist Museum have worked closely over the years to bring out a variety of interesting exhibit catalogues.
Lacy Lockert (1888–1974) is a staff-favorite author. He was a professor at Kenyon College until his poor health caused him to retire. He then devoted his life to scholarship and translation. More a completist than a connoisseur, he translated classic works of French literature that, in his words, were “not necessarily the best.” Though frail and sickly, Lockert was an enormous fan of football and wished to be considered a football historian. Vanderbilt’s archives contain Lockert’s papers, including a great deal of Tolkien fan fiction he wrote set in Middle Earth.
