William Faulkner purchased his home in 1930 and named it Rowan Oak in 1931. It served as the Faulkner family home for over 40 years. The Greek Revival house pre-dates the Civil War and includes many rooms original to the house. Faulkner added some additional rooms, including his office in 1952.

Speaker: Otis Sanford, editorial page editor of The Commercial Appeal in Memphis
Sanford, an Ole Miss graduate and Silver Em winner, traces his love of journalism back to first grade when his father would ask him to read the sports pages so he could keep up with the baseball scores. Sanford, who was reared near Como, Miss., published his first article as a seventh grader, writing for the North Panola High School paper.
Sanford worked on the Daily Mississippian while at Ole Miss. In 1975, he was the first black reporter hired by The Clarion-Ledger in Jackson. A few years later he was working at The Commercial Appeal in Memphis where one of his first assignments was reporting Elvis Presley’s death.
Sanford eventually became an assistant metro editor at The Commercial Appeal before leaving Memphis in 1987 to become an assistant city editor at The Pittsburgh Press. After a stint as deputy city editor of the Detroit Free Press, Sanford returned to Memphis in 1994 as deputy managing editor. He was named managing editor in 2003.
