Pearl S. Buck International’s semi-permanent Pearl S. Buck Honors and Achievements Exhibit is now on display in the Welcome Center Exhibit Gallery.
Pearl S. Buck was honored with numerous awards during her lifetime and posthumously.
She received a wide range of plaques, certificates, and awards, which spoke to the many inspiring achievements she accomplished during her life.
For Pearl Buck, an award was not just an honor but a chance to shed light on the rights of marginalized communities including people of different races, women, and people who are disabled.
She believed that a strong society is built on respect and equity for all people, no matter their race, religion, or citizenship.
The awards room exhibit is not a tribute to her many honors, but to her lifetime commitment to standing with those seeking equal rights and advocating for those who did not have a voice to fight for themselves.
Among the many artifacts on display are Pearl S. Buck’s Nobel and Pulitzer Prizes.
She was the first American woman to be awarded both the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes for literature.
Pearl S. Buck International is located at 520 Dublin Road, Hilltown, PA. For more information on this exhibit, visit https://pearlsbuck.org/exhibit-gallery/exhibits/.
