UPK Author Wins Louisville History Book Award

Published: Jan 22, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 22, 2013)University Press of Kentucky (UPK) author, Lawrence M. Crutcher, has been selected to receive the inaugural Samuel W. Thomas Louisville History Book Award for his book, "George Keats of Kentucky: A Life."

 

The Louisville Historical League, dedicated to promoting the appreciation and preservation of the cultural heritage and historic environment in the metro area of Louisville, Ky., will present the award to Crutcher, the great-great-great-grandson of George Keats.

 

"George Keats of Kentucky" offers compelling insight into the life of George Keats (1797–1841), the often forgotten younger brother of the romantic poet John Keats.

 

George Keats, portrayed as the prodigal son, faced criticism for not supporting his ailing brother and became known as the "business brother." In this authoritative biography, Crutcher clarifies the Keats brothers' relationship and offers insight into 19th century life, commerce and entrepreneurship in Louisville.

 

"George Keats of Kentucky," featuring more than 90 color photographs, recognizes George Keats' merit as a successful businessman and as an important member of the developing urban community. 

 

Crutcher also authored "The Keats Family."

 

The Thomas Louisville History Book Award will be presented to Crutcher at a ceremony at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, in the auditorium at the Kentucky School for the Blind, located at 1867 Frankfort Ave., in Louisville.

 

The award, named in honor of Samuel W. Thomas' contributions to local history, recognizes the best new book on Louisville history. Thomas, who passed away Oct. 4, 2012, authored more than 20 books on Louisville, including "Views Of Louisville Since 1766."  

 

UPK is the scholarly publisher for the Commonwealth of Kentucky, representing a consortium that now includes all of the state universities, five private colleges and two historical societies. Led by Director Stephen Wrinn, its editorial program focuses on the humanities and social sciences. Offices for the administrative, editorial, production and marketing departments of the press are found at the University of Kentucky, which provides financial support toward the operating expenses of the publishing operation.
