Ken Kesey papers to remain at University of Oregon

Oct 15, 2013


By The Associated Press

EUGENE — The collected papers of novelist Ken Kesey, including drafts of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest” and “Sometimes a Great Notion,” will remain at the University of Oregon.

The Register-Guard reports librarians persuaded UO President Michael Gottfredson to add $1 million to about $400,000 in donations put up by Kesey fans so the collection can stay at the UO's Knight Library.

Libraries Dean Deb Carver says the works are part of the cultural heritage of the state.

Kesey graduated from the University of Oregon in 1957. His most famous books, “Cuckoo's Nest” and “Great Notion,” were published in 1962 and 1964. He died in 2001.

The papers will be available to students and scholars, but the Kesey family retains copyright rights.
