Description

Location of Marker: Entrance to Collier Library. Text: T.S. Stribling 1903; T.S. Stribling (1881-1965) was a 1903 graduate of the State Normal School, now the University of North Alabama. One of America's best selling authors between the World Wars, Stribling lived for a number of years in Florence, the setting for his Southern trilogy: "The Forge" (1931), "The Store" (1932) and "Unfinished Cathedral" (1934). The author of numerous science fiction and detective stories, he made significant contributions to those genres. He is best remembered, however, as a novelist. Stribling's realistic treatment of life in the South places him in the vanguard of the Southern Literary Renaissance. He received the 1933 Pulitzer Prize for his novel, "The Store". Presented 2003 by the UNA National Alumni Association, March 9, 2003.
