International Conference on Elvis Presley
The programme for the first "International conference on Elvis Presley" 6-11 August 1995.
The Conference was launched by Dr Vernon Chadwick of Oxford Mississippi seen with Maureen, my wife, on the photo taken in September 1999.
Vernon's book "In Search of Elvis" Westview Press, containing a collection of essays from the Conference is a must read. You will need a good dictionary :doh:
The conference ran into trouble with the University snobs and Vernon fought tooth and nail to keep it going in OXFORD. Details of his struggle are covered in the book.
Vernon kindly drove us from Oxford to Tupelo and back to Memphis via Gracelandtoo in Holly Springs :cool:
Did anyone here attend any of the Conferences in Oxford 1995,96.97, and later in Memphis?
