Hotch at 100

In 2017, to help celebrate  A. E. Hotchner’s centennial birthday, Washington University interviewed the celebrated author and alum about this illustrious life and career. Over the ensuing year, Washington University’s Julian Edison Department of Special Collections has been creating topical segments and posting them to a playlist on the Modern Literature Collection’s YouTube channel and blog. Below are links to the blog posts with the relevant video embedded in each, and with supplemental scans of items from the A. E. Hotchner Papers.
