This chapter describes Still’s image as a reclusive writer who wrote to make himself happy. In fact, he also wrote to publish but had little success in the 1950s. When “The Run for the Elbertas” appeared in 1959, Albert Stewart used its success to bring Still to Morehead State College and to establish the James Still Room. This move began his transition into a public figure, but he maintained his log house in Knott County and strengthened his relationship with the Perry family there.
