The Triple Thinkers

EDWARD MacDOWELL MEDAL, August 26, 1984.

The MacDowell colony is the oldest and largest artist colony in the United States. Located in Peterborough, New Hampshire, it has conferred since 1960 an annual award which recognizes someone who has made an outstanding contribution to the arts. In her acceptance speech, Mary McCarthy suggested that this award was a "delicious high point" in her career as a writer.
