University buys 'Confederacy of Dunces' manuscript

University buys 'Confederacy of Dunces' manuscript (AP) — Three photos of John Kennedy Toole as a teenager and a photocopied manuscript of his novel "A Confederacy of Dunces" with handwritten corrections now belong to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where Toole taught briefly. The university plans to use the artifacts for study, research, exhibition and a symposium next year. Biographer Cory MacLauchlin tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/10yKej6 ) he thinks the manuscript may have been typed after Toole's death, when his mother was trying to get the book published.
