In Memoriam: Doris Betts (1932 - 2012)

1992 Caldwell Laureate Doris W. Betts presents the Caldwell  Award for the Humanities to 2009 Caldwell Laureate Marsha Warren

The North Carolina Humanities Council shares the deep sense of loss expressed by so many at Doris Betts' passing. The citizens of our state benefited from her deep commitment and support of public humanities. Betts, the 1992 Caldwell Laureate, said of Marsha White Warren in 2009 that “the arts, the humanities, and the quality of life in our state are stronger and better because of Marsha Warren.” The same is true of Doris Betts.
