Topic - James Plath
John Updike once helped an Illinois English professor propose to his wife to be. And now that same professor is helping preserve the celebrated novelist's legacy.
James Plath, professor of English at Illinois Wesleyan University, tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that the idea of such a society was nixed by the author while he was alive, but took off when he died last year at the age of 76.
Plath said he wants to make sure the proposed historic site would not disrupt the residential nature of the area.
