Overview

The Grove. The Square. Hotty Toddy. Taylor Grocery. Red and Blue. Square Books. These are words that are evocative of a specific place and feeling—Ole Miss at Oxford. And in this new book by William H. Morris, Jr., we have photographs that will stir memories of lazy afternoons in the Grove or strolling in the Square and will stimulate the senses with the action of the football games played in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and the bustling Oxford milieu. Ole Miss at Oxford: A Part of Our Heart and Soul is a collection of approximately 300 beautiful photographs spanning twenty years of life at Ole Miss and in Oxford. Through this book, Bill takes us on a wonderful meandering path through the graceful town of Oxford, home to many true literary greats, one of the oldest department stores in the U.S., and one of the nation s greatest bookstores. We journey to the Grove for gatherings of food, fun, and fellowship before the big game, and they are all big games. The excitement is almost tangible as the players burst onto the field before crowds of enthusiastic fans ready to see the Rebels perform amazing football feats. Then, it s back to the Grove for celebrations that are heightened or commiserations that are lessened by the sharing of them with family and friends. We travel back to town and encounter parades, festivals, and nightlife. These photographs become a record and provide a means for us to see people and places that are no longer, because Bill Morris took the time to see and to photograph. Bill Morris has captured the essence of this very special place in the spectacular photographs included in this book to be shared by all. This book is a true Welcome to Ole Miss and Oxford, as a banner over Neilson s reads in a photograph early in the book. So open the book and begin your journey.
