Since Mount Vernon and Knox County were first settled in the early 1800’s there have been more than 100 historians, journalists, novelists, playwrights, poets and other writers who have called this area their home for some period of time.
We are indebted to the late Dr. Keith Clinker, antiquarian bookseller and retired professor at the Mount Vernon Nazarene University, for his great work in producing many biographical sketches and bibliographies for these writers, and for the many volumes from his collection which have been donated to our Museum as well. We will continue his work by adding new information about these and other writers as it becomes available.
Persons having additional information about these or other Knox County authors are encouraged to contact the KCHS Museum at 740-393-5247.
