Room Website

The O'Connor Room, completed in 1974, was planned and constructed under the guidance of Georgia College Alumni Association members Dorrie Neligan and Lucy Nell Cunningham.  The furnishings present in the room were chosen from Andalusia, the author's farm just outside of town.  The room also includes the author's christening gown, which was also worn by her father, her typewriter, desk, and collection of books.

At Georgia College & State University we recognize the responsibility we have in caring for and providing access to the most complete O'Connor collection available.  We strive to maintain the collection and room as the center of research for scholars and students from around the world who may contribute to the continuation of O'Connor's legacy.
