Hemingway scholar Audre Hanneman dies at 83

Audre Hanneman of Kansas City, a self-made scholar who compiled an exhaustive two-volume bibliography of Ernest Hemingway, died Thursday night at Research Hospital of a liver disease. She was 83.

Hanneman’s Hemingway bibliographies, totaling nearly 1,000 pages, were published by the Princeton University Press in the 1960s and ‘70s. They’ve been invaluable source material for literary scholars ever since.

In June 2008, Hanneman, a native of Council Bluffs, Iowa, addressed an international Hemingway conference in Kansas City and received a standing ovation from a ballroom full of scholars in her debt.
