Historical Note

Southern Methodist University opened for classes in 1915, but it was not until twenty years later when interest in establishing a university publishing group culminated in the creation of SMU Press in 1937. SMU English professor John McGinnis was the driving force behind the initiative, and he directed the Press for its first few years of operation. Donald Day took over as editor for a brief period after him.

Along with McGinnis, SMU President Umphrey Lee, Bishop A. Frank Smith, history professor Herbert Gambrell, English professor Henry Nash Smith, and university promoter Eugene McElvaney (later chairman of the Board of Trustees) were several of the prominent SMU administrators and faculty who helped create the first university press in Texas.

The Schoellkopf family, which had played a major role in the development of industry in Dallas since the late 1800s, provided the initial funding. The family donated $1,000 for SMU Press to begin operations in 1937, and the Press’ first book, Naturalists of the Frontier by SMU biology professor Samuel Wood Geiser, was published that same year. Not until two years later was the Press’ second book published: John C. Duval: First Texas Man of Letters by J. Frank Dobie.

The success of a publishing group at a small and still fledgling university was hardly assured, and SMU Press’ initial funding did not allow for high volume publishing. As Mary Martha Hosford Thomas commented in her book Southern Methodist University: Founding and Early Years,

Establishment of a press at SMU in 1937 was a rather audacious move. There was no money in sight to pay even for secretarial services, let alone to employ a full-time staff. The thousand dollars in hand was enough to pay only for publication of one book. After Geiser’s volume was published, no further activity could be contemplated until the Schoellkopf Fund could be replenished by sales.

The founding staff of the Press consisted of Smith, Gambrell, SMU English professor George Bond, and art professor Jerry Bywaters. Dr. Gambrell headed the Board of Publications from 1939 to 1964. Allen Maxwell served as the director of the Press from 1946 until 1982, and also worked as the editor of the Southwest Review (which had been purchased by SMU in 1924). Trudy McMurrin directed the Press from 1982 until 1986, and Keith Gregory is the current director.

Elizabeth Stover, in charge of production and promotion, worked for two decades at the Press until her retirement in 1961. Also among the longtime Press staff members was Margaret Hartley, who began working at the Press in 1947 and went on to serve a quarter century at the Press in several capacities including editor. She, like Maxwell, also worked as Southwest Review editor from 1962 to 1982.

Most of the books published by SMU Press were scholarly works, as opposed to books published for popular consumption, and the Press was therefore considered a nonprofit organization; it resembled other university-operated presses. Because the audience of its publications was rather small, proceeds from book sales were not enough to meet expenses, and for many years a major source of funding for the Press was the university athletic department. A 1951 agreement between the department and the Press provided for a donation of $100,000, to be given over a period of ten years. The money came from the athletic department’s ticket sales from campus sporting events; a 1958 report to the Faculty Senate noted that this beneficial arrangement for SMU Press was a method of funding unique in university publishing.

1964 marked an important milestone for SMU Press, as it published its 100th book that year, and ten years later boasted over 150 titles. A number of the books published under its name have won recognition and have been translated abroad. SMU political science professor Ann Van Wynen Thomas’ book Communism versus International Law was heavily distributed overseas by the United States Information Agency, especially in India, and USIA also sponsored foreign language editions of the book in Arabic, Japanese, and Portuguese. A Lion Unannounced, a collection of short stories written by Leonard Casper, was chosen as a 1972 National Council of the Arts selection.

Adria Bernardi’s novel Openwork, published by SMU Press in 2006, won honorable mention for the L.L. Winship/PEN New England Award. In addition, Mrs. Somebody Somebody by Tracy Winn (2009) received prominent reviews in the Boston Globe, Publisher’s Weekly, and People Magazine; Random House later purchased the publishing rights to Ms. Winn’s book for a paperback edition. An anthology of essays on baseball, Anatomy of Baseball (for which Yogi Berra wrote the Foreword) was featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and National Public Radio. In 2008, copies of the book were given as gifts to over 300 baseball VIPs by Major League Baseball at the All Star Game.

The Press has published works by prominent literary figures and SMU faculty members such as J. Frank Dobie, William Warren Sweet, David J. Weber, Peter Bakewell, Paul Boller, Jr., and Marshall Terry. SMU Press has also published works on the history of the university, including Architecture At SMU: 50 Years and Buildings, by James F. White; Southern Methodist University: Founding and Early Years, by Mary Martha Hosford Thomas (1974); Willis M. Tate: Views and Interviews, by Johnnie Marie Grimes (1978); and SMU Reflections, a photo essay edited by Elizabeth Perkins Prothro, Bonnie Brunk Hillerbrand, and Donna Booth Salacuse (1986).

Near the end of its run, SMU Press published approximately 10-12 titles per year, in several subject areas: creative nonfiction, literary fiction, medical humanities, Southwestern studies, and sports. It was part of the Texas A&M Press Consortium, a group of university presses in Texas including Texas Christian University Press, University of North Texas Press, and the Texas State Historical Association. SMU Press ceased operations in 2015.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Southern Methodist University Press records are organized into thirteen series. The spread of dates are included, but the material within each series is mostly arranged alphabetically: Series 1, Correspondence by author name; Series 2, Director’s Files and Series 3, General Promotion and Sales by author name and subject; Series 4, Book Promotion and Sales and Series 5, Production by name of publication; and so on.

In addition to records related to the production, promotion, and sales of particular publications and information on authors, this collection also contains records on the operations of SMU Press. Series 8 holds material on the membership of SMU Press in the American Association of University Presses: book fairs, meetings, financing, etc.

Records on the internal affairs of SMU Press can be found in Series 10, Board of Publications, and Series 12, Financial Records. Information on the partnership between SMU Press and the Texas Folklore Society can be found in Series 9.

Some material in this collection was unprocessed when most of the collection was processed in 1989. This material was also not in the original finding aid. Photographs for Early Texas Homes, originally published by SMU Press in 1956, can be found following Series 12, Miscellaneous Printed Material. Three oversize boxes containing proofs and other information related to the production of The World of Paul Crume (SMU Press, 1980) have also been placed at the end of this finding aid. A final box, originally marked “University Science Series,” and consisting of records on the Woodbine Symposium (related to the East Texas Geological Society) and the publication of the Fondren Science Series, has also been placed at the end of the collection.

After SMU ceased operations in 2015, twenty-four boxes of publication files were transferred to DeGolyer Library. These files were mostly from director Keith Gregory’s tenure, and reflect the organization style of the Press from the mid-1980s to 2015.

Users of this collection should note that the original method of processing established series (below) that did not necessarily result in all of the material on a particular publication being placed in the same series. Records on Whitney Harris’ Tyranny on Trial, for example, can be found in Series 2, Director’s Files; Series 4, Book Promotion and Sales; and Series 5, Production. Users who are looking for material for a particular book should check each series of the collection.
