News Display: Fitzgerald's First Novel Is Published

This Side of Paradise, F. Scott Fitzgerald's first novel, was published with critical acclaim on March 26, 1920 by Scribner. Through a blend of writing styles, it tells the thwarted romances of Amory Blaine, a young Princeton University student and World War II bayonet instructor. Affected by his failed relationships and the death of his spiritual mentor Monsignor Darcy, Blaine learns to "know" himself, as revealed in the "The Education of a Personage".

Headlines will showcase stories about F. Scott Fitzgerald, including his college years at Princeton University -- a crucial time to his development as a writer.

The F. Scott Fitzgerald papers are held at Princeton University; they are a comprehensive literary archive containing the original manuscripts, working drafts, corrected galleys, personal and professional correspondence, autobiographical scrapbooks, photographs, and other original materials of F. Scott Fitzgerald.

To celebrate the 125th Anniversary of Teachers College, we will showcase one interesting story per day on the history and development of Teachers College, including its departments, programs and members. Drawn from major national and international newspapers, the display in the Everett Cafe will run for 125 days, Monday, February 4th-Friday, July 26th.

In addition we will continue our weekly displays of educational news displays on a wide range of topics, as well as our daily postings of headlines from around the world.
