F. M. Tuttle

AKA: Morrie

The author was a founding member of the Nebraska Literary Heritage Association, a long time board member and Heritage Room supporter. An Eiseley expert and enthusiast, Tuttle was a founding member of the Friends of Loren Eiseley, now The Loren Eiseley Society. He was a friend of Gale E. Christianson, Eiseley's biographer. As a result of this friendship, Morrie was able to bring the Christianson-Eiseley collection, including all the materials and interviews Christianson collected while researching his Eiseley biography, to the collections of the Heritage Room.

We appreciate corrections and additions to our information about authors, but please read the following guidelines and caveats carefully.

  • The Nebraska Authors database is based on publicly available sources. Unless you are the author contacting us in person, it helps us if you cite the source or sources of your information. We cannot include unsourced information in the database.
  • We may be appreciative of information we choose not to include in the publicly available database.
  • To include an image on an author profile, please send jpg attachment to nebraskaauthors@lincoln.ne.gov. A photo-release agreement is required before the image will be published on this site.
  • Because of the way we are staffed, expect corrections or additions to take time, sometimes up to three months.
  • While we initially included some actual links to external URLs in the database, we will in the future no longer provide functioning links. We will instead record the presence of specific external materials in language that we hope will help intelligent users find it themselves. Web rot, in which actual materials remain online but undergo changes in their URLs, is too demanding in terms of staff time for us to hope to keep external links current.

Please copy, fill out the form below, and email it to NebraskaAuthors@lincoln.ne.gov to suggest a change.
