University Press of Kentucky

This chapter relates Still’s experience as a graduate student in English at Vanderbilt University. He studied under well-known scholars and writers including some members of the influential Fugitive and Agrarian movements. Inspired by Walter Clyde Curry’s Chaucer class, Still wrote his thesis on Middle English Romances. Though the academic life was rigorous, Still was successful, and he found time to travel to Wilder, Tennessee, to distribute supplies to striking coal miners and to attend the 56th running of the Kentucky Derby. Still was awarded his MA on June 11, 1930.
