Conrad Aiken (1889–1973), born in Savannah, was the first Georgia native to win a Pulitzer Prize—in 1930, for his Selected Poems. A major international literary figure, Aiken published over thirty books of poems, nine novels, several volumes of criticism, books for children, a play, and a notable autobiography, Ushant (1952), over the course of his five-decade career. His Earth Triumphant and Other Tales in Verse (1914) is widely considered a milestone of literary Modernism. (Inducted in 2003)

James Kilgo (1941–2002) was born in Darlington, South Carolina. He graduated from Wofford College, then went on to receive his MA and PhD in American Literature from Tulane University. In 1967 he joined the faculty of the English department at the University of Georgia, where he remained until his retirement in 1999. Though he didn’t begin his creative writing career until he was well into his 30s, by the time he died in 2002 Kilgo had become an author both critically acclaimed and widely-read. His books include the essay collections Deep Enough for Ivorybills (1988) and Inheritance of Horses (1994); the Townsend Prize–winning novel Daughter of My People (1998); and the posthumously released autobiographical travel narrative Colors of Africa (2003). He also wrote The Blue Wall: Wilderness of the Carolinas and Georgia (1996) in collaboration with photographer Thomas Wyche, and in 1999 published the memoir The Hand-Carved Creche and Other Christmas Stories.
