Leonidas Warren Payne, Jr. (1873-1945), counted
Robert Frost among his friends and a member of
the inner circle of poets who embraced him and
sought his advice. He altered forever the perception
of Texas when he created the Texas Folklore Society
that continues to record, publish, and promote
Texas history, myth, music, and customs. He guided
J. Frank Dobie back into The University of Texas
fold, where Dobie produced his finest work and
established a voice for Texas literature. L. W. Payne,
Jr., influenced generations of American school
children through his anthologies that became basic
English textbooks. more... about Rare Integrity: A Portrait of L. W. Payne, Jr.
