Biographical / Historical Notes

Tracy Daugherty was born June 5, 1955 in Midland, Texas. Daugherty is a well-respected author and Emeritus Professor at Oregon State University. Daugherty grew up in a city dominated by the oil-industry in western Texas, and he draws on memories of the environment and landscape in his work. He remembers being drawn to the sky as a child, which was more interesting than the tumbleweed, which led to an early interest in astronomy and recording his experiences in writing. Daugherty also credits his grandfather, a member of the House of Representatives in Oklahoma, with encouraging his interest and abilities in writing. When he was growing up his grandfather pushed him to gather stories, write about them, and learn how to talk about his work.

In 1973, Daugherty started college at Southern Methodist University, a liberal arts school in Dallas, Texas. He graduated in 1977 with a Bachelor of Arts and later obtained a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. While at the university, Daugherty and his peers worked on a literary magazine and helped establish the Southern Methodist University Literary Festival. After completing his MFA, he was accepted into the Ph.D. program at the University of Houston in 1980. While at University of Houston, Daugherty met Donald Barthelme, who became his mentor and advised him on both his dissertation and first novel, Desire Provoked, which was published in 1986. Barthelme also became the subject of his first biography, published in 2009 and entitled Hiding Man: A Biography of Donald Barthelme. Though it was originally conceived of as a personal project, his first biography received critical praise and was deemed a success in the literary world. His publishers asked him to write more in the same genre. Just One Catch: A Biography of Joseph Heller and The Last Love Song: A Biography of Joan Didion followed; both were published by St. Martin’s Press.

While working on his M.F.A. and Ph.D., Daugherty taught undergraduate classes; his interest in teaching at a college level grew as he found teaching to be compatible with his work as a writer. Daugherty completed his dissertation in 1985 and began applying for teaching positions; he accepted a position at Oregon State University in 1986 and continued to write novels, short story collections, and biographies.

Daugherty enjoyed teaching introductory literature courses because he was able to watch their fascination and respect for the literary world increase. Teaching also allowed him to stay connected with other writers and watch as the next generation of writers explored new definitions of literature. Early into his teaching career, he recognized the need for a Master’s program in Creative Writing at OSU. After fourteen years of advocating for and creating the program, Daugherty saw the the Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing introduced in 2001; it has grown from a few courses into a successful undergraduate and graduate program.

Over the years, Daugherty has come to realize that he prefers to work with small publishing houses rather than large ones. After his first novel was published with Random House, subsequent books have been published with W.W. Norton & Company, Southern Methodist University Press, University of Nebraska Press, St. Martin’s Press, John Hopkins University Press, the Texas Review Press, and University of Georgia Press.

In 2013, Daugherty retired from Oregon State University with the position as Emeritus Professor. He lives in Corvallis and is involved with the local writing community through his work with the Magic Barrel, a literary event that raises money for the Linn Benton Food Share, and graduate students through advising. Daugherty has also maintained a position in the Association of Writers & Writing Program in Portland and attends the nation-wide conference every year. He strongly believes that writers must stay a part of the community and promote literature rather than “withdraw in the ivory towers.”
