Biographical and Historical Note

Edwin Graves Wilson, known affectionately as "Mr. Wake Forest," is Professor Emeritus of English and Provost Emeritus for Wake Forest University. Wilson was born February 1, 1923, in Leaksville, N.C., in Rockingham County, and began classes at Wake Forest at age 16. He graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. (1943) in English and was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa and Omicron Delta Kappa honor societies. After graduation, he served as a U.S. Navy officer on three destroyer escorts during World War II (1943-1946): U.S.S. Coffman, U.S.S. Lewis, and U.S.S. Raymond in the Pacific. Post-war, he received his A.M. (1948) and Ph.D (1952) in English from Harvard University. Wilson returned to his alma mater as an Instructor in English and was named Professor of English in 1959. Regarded as a skilled teacher, Wilson focused on the British Romantic poets, such as William Wordsworth, Lord Bryon, and William Blake, as well as William Butler Yeats and Dylan Thomas.

Wilson had a long and distinguished administrative career at WFU. His positions included: Assistant Dean, Undergraduate College; Acting Dean and Dean of the College (1958-1967); the inaugural Provost (1967-1990); Vice President for Special Projects; and Senior Vice President. Under his leadership, the Faculty Committee voted to end segregation, residential study abroad programs were established in London and Venice, and the Wake Forest University Press opened its doors. He also represented Wake Forest on numerous national organizations, including the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), where he also served as president. Prior to his retirement from the Provost role in 1993, the new wing of the Z. Smith Reynolds Library was named in his honor (1992). Wilson is the recipient of several University awards: the Reinhardt Award for Distinguished Teaching, the Distinguished Alumni Citation, and in 2004, he received the highest award for service to the University, the Medallion of Merit. In 2020, he published Songs of Wake Forest: Tributes by Edwin G. Wilson, a collection of remembrances for more than 50 Wake Forest community members whom he has paid tribute to at funerals or memorial services during his tenure at the University.

Wilson has served numerous arts-related organizations in addition to his scholarly work. He was a Trustee for the North Carolina Humanities Council (1977-1980), and Winston-Salem State University, and was involved in various capacities with the Piedmont Opera Theater, the Winston-Salem Arts Council, the North Carolina Arts Council, the Reynolda House Museum of American Art, and on the Winston-Salem State University Board of Trustees.

Wilson was awarded the North Carolina Award for Public Service (2002) and the John Tyler Caldwell Award for the Humanities (2014) from the North Carolina Humanities Council. He is married to the author and poet Emily Herring Wilson (M.A. 1962). They are the parents of three children: Eddie, Sally, and Julie.

Collection Overview

This collection documents Wilson's work from the point of his selection as first Provost in 1968 to his roles as Vice President of Special Projects, Senior Vice President, and Provost Emeritus. There may also some overlap with records in Office of the Dean. Edwin Graves Wilson Records (RG4.1.8), which covers his early years and time as Dean of the College.

Material types present in the collection include audiovisual recordings of speeches and public appearances, clippings, correspondence, memorandums, meeting agendas and minutes, pamphlets, programs, and reports. Few of the audiovisual recordings are currently digitized. When other college and university materials are present, that is noted; otherwise, items relate to WFU.

These materials extend beyond Wilson's work at Wake Forest and represent his interest in and work regarding organizations such as the Arts Councils of Winston-Salem and North Carolina, the National Endowment for the Arts, and others.

Realia items include NCAA and ACC championship rings and watches, a puzzle related to a party for Dr. Maya Angelou, buttons, souvenirs from both Clinton inaugurations, plaques and medals awarded to Wilson, a custom painted football, and other University memorabilia.

Selected digitized materials from both Edwin G. Wilson record collections are available through Special Collections and Archives' Digital Collections.
