    before you re seven eight nine years old Warren told The New England Review in 1978 That s true for my life anyway The museum includes items related to Warren and his family and friends The Battle Won Now What With so much of Guthrie having shaped Warren it was important for the Kentucky town of approximately 1 500 to keep ties to its most famous citizen By the mid 1980s the community was changed from the one Warren knew His parents siblings and many friends were gone The railroad presence was a shadow of what it had been Places he recalled and the houses his family lived in were in private hands The town didn t have anything to honor its native son First we got the townspeople and the county people all riled up Smith recalls Then the small group called politicians They wrote Warren scholars They alerted the media The media turned the tide the women say The Atlanta Constitution came up and did a two page story on us Smith says Then newspapers all over the country took up the story In a few weeks the battle was over The sale to the university didn t go through and the 17 members of the Committee for the Preservation of the Robert Penn Warren Birthplace found themselves called upon to sign a legal agreement making them personally responsible for the house s mortgage Jeane Smith and Melba Moore are two of the local volunteers who saved and renovated the house That was one of the things that hit us Moore recalls We ve made all this fuss now it was ours We ve got it and we ve got to do something with it or we d have egg all over our faces So we had to go on We couldn t stop The house had had several owners since the Warrens moved to another Guthrie house during Warren s boyhood Most recently it had been rental property owned by two Air Force colonels at nearby Fort Campbell It would require renovation collections and period appropriate furnishings to make it a proper museum And funds Grassroots and Gumption The committee registered as a 501 c 3 nonprofit and raised the money needed to purchase repair and run the house We actually paid for the house with grassroots fundraising mostly luncheons that we catered in the house Moore says of the group that continues to oversee the birthplace That was over a long period of time We had yard sales we had auctions we had walks everything we could think of But as far as writing is concerned the basic images that every man has I suppose go back to those of his childhood He has to live on that capital all his life Robert Penn Warren At the same time we were doing that we were making people aware of Warren going to schools giving programs having schoolchildren here once the house was to a point that

    Fisk Vanderbilt Masters to Ph D Bridge program the university s alliance with the historically black university It turns out that Vanderbilt and Queen s both for very different reasons are at this very interesting point in history Vanderbilt through our partnership with Fisk is attempting in an aggressive and progressive way to respond to the need for increased diversity in the sciences and to train diverse future leaders for the scientific professions Stassun says Northern Ireland is emerging from an era of great challenge and unrest They are now addressing the challenges of successfully integrating traditionally self segregated religious groups for full inclusion in the scientific professions he says We re approaching those challenges institutionally in a similarly broadminded and positive and inclusive way Bridges and Connections Arts and Science s international interests support individual students and scholars too Building international connections early in a scholarly career can be a critical early marker of success says Mona Frederick executive director of the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities That s a discovery that has characterized the Warren Center s graduate fellowship program with Queen s which provides a fellowship to a Queen s graduate student to be part of the Warren Center for a year while the scholar works on his or her dissertation Some students now choose to do internships with French companies or nonprofits gaining valuable international work experience As dissertation adviser for Queen s graduate student Clive Hunter Queen s University Senior Lecturer Maeve McCusker traveled to Nashville for a public lecture Hunter presented in conjunction with the program She noted that the Warren Center s Graduate Student Fellows program projected the very model of what a postgraduate community should look like While students came from different disciplines and had an eclectic range of interests I was genuinely dazzled by the connections and bridges they found between their varied fields McCusker says She was further dazzled when her Irish boyfriend a Queen s faculty colleague who accompanied her on the trip proposed in Tootsie s Orchid Lounge with a ring purchased at Tiffany in Nashville Married now the couple has a painting of Nashville s honky tonk strip hanging in their dining room It s not just faculty and students learning from each other either Dean Carolyn Dever and other leaders have visited Queen s University Belfast and the University of Melbourne and key officials from core partner institutions have visited and learned from Vanderbilt Additionally Queen s University has consulted with Vanderbilt as it builds its own humanities center in Belfast The Pyramid s Foundation Study Abroad Each year more than 40 percent of College of Arts and Science juniors study abroad in Vanderbilt sponsored programs The most popular one is Vanderbilt in France which has been in existence for 51 years The longstanding program has adapted over the years to accommodate changes in French culture and politics and continues to develop new emphases As part of the program some students now choose to

    explain why particles have mass The CMS team and another team Atlas completed astonishingly fast analysis of this data Greene says Neither result is big enough to reach the level needed for a discovery and it seems clear that we will need at least another year s worth of data While finding the elusive Higgs boson sometimes called the God particle may be one of the major goals of the LHC it is far from the only research that s being conducted Greene Professor of Physics Charles Maguire and Professor of Physics Julia Velkovska received one of Vanderbilt s own IDEAS grants to study jet shapes in heavy ion collisions Associate Professor of Physics Will Johns performs research that makes him the go to person for the pixel tracking detectors the fine tracking detectors at the heart of CMS Greene says Vanderbilt plays a key role in collecting and storing the data and disseminating it to thousands of other researchers around the world All top physics departments have a presence in fundamental physics like this Greene says Ultimately you need to be able to understand matter in its essence It s also attractive to students As soon as LHC turned on we had more students than we knew what to do with Students want to work at the energy frontier and that s something we can provide Middle of the Night Meetings To be sure there are modern day challenges such as the weekly meetings that alternate between convenient times for those in Europe and for researchers in the States That may mean that a Vanderbilt postdoctoral researcher like Monika Sharma makes a presentation at 2 a m ensuring that her web camera is turned off so no one can see that she s ready for bed It also requires physics graduate student Eric Appelt to be available any time the green on the screen turns red indicating that there s an issue with the quality of the data that s being sent He has five minutes to respond to avert a flurry of panicked calls from researchers from around the world concerned about data being lost As soon as LHC turned on we had more students than we knew what to do with Students want to work at the energy frontier and that s something we can provide Victoria Greene We actually rotate being on call Appelt says There is actually a human being looking at these all the time If one of these turns red there s someone somewhere in the world with a beeper While the LHC is itself a marvel the sheer volume of data that it creates brings both challenges and potential In December 2010 the heavy ion collisions generated 30 million separate events all of which had to be analyzed In all the LHC provides enough data to fill 1 7 million dual sided DVDs each year Vanderbilt has devoted more than 1 000 computer cores to store the information It s a different
