Biographical Sketch

Howard Bahr was born in Meridian, Mississippi, on August 3, 1946. He served as a gunner's mate in the Navy in Vietnam and the Western Pacific between 1964 and 1968. Bahr worked as a brakeman and a yard clerk on several railroads in the South and Midwest before entering the University of Mississippi in 1973. He received a B.A. degree in English and history in 1977 and an M.A. degree in English in 1980, both from Ole Miss. He completed the coursework and examinations for a Ph.D., but withdrew without completing a dissertation. Bahr was on the staff at Rowan Oak, the home of William Faulkner, between 1976 and 1993. He served as curator after 1982 and was an instructor of literature at the University of Mississippi as well. Bahr came to Motlow State Community College in Lynchburg, Tennessee, in 1993, where he currently is an associate professor of English.

Bahr published Home for Christmas: A Story of the South, a children's book, in 1987. It was edited and reissued in 1997. He also authored two adult novels: The Black Flower: A Novel of the Civil War (1997) and The Year of Jubilo: A Novel of the Civil War (2000).
