From  September 8 through November 1, 1998 the Mildred Hawn Gallery in SMU's Jake and Nancy Hamon Arts Library will be the venue for "A Greer Garson Scrapbook."   This exhibition will be held in conjunction with the Meadows School of the Arts' Greer Garson film festival, September 11-13.  It will furnish a context for the films in the festival, as the exhibition will document her film and stage careers, philanthropic activities, her marriage to oilman Colonel E. E. "Buddy" Fogelson, and her friendships with a number of individuals prominent in twentieth-century American popular culture and history.  Nominated seven times for an Academy Award, Greer Garson received the Best Actress award in 1942 for her role in "Mrs. Miniver."  The Exhibition represents a sampling of the approxiamately 60 linear feet of archival material donates to SMU by the actress who resided in Dallas following her 1949 marriage to Fogelson.  these Scrapbooks, photographs, correspondence, and other papers in the Greer Garson Collection are housed in Bywaters Special Collections.
