Author Paul Green (1894-1981) was one of the South’s most revered writers, and one of America’s most distinguished. The first playwright from the South to gain national and international recognition, he was part of that remarkable generation of writers who first brought southern writing to the attention of the world.

His best known achievements were as a playwright, and included his 1927 Pulitzer Prize plays In Abraham's Bosom, his 1937 The Lost Colony (his first of 17 Symphonic Drama creations), and his 1941 stage play of Richard Wright's Native Son. Equal to his literary influence has been his influence on human rights in the South and internationally.
