Professor of English Mark Raymond Dunphy came to Lindsey Wilson in 1992. He is remembered as a literary scholar with a deep devotion to his students and the mission of Lindsey Wilson College. His area of expertise included authors Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne, James Joyce and Jack Kerouac. For much of his career, Dunphy wrote and presented papers to illustrate the intellectual connections between the American writers of the romantic period of the mid-19th century and the American Beat writers of the mid-20th century. His work often received attention both nationally and abroad.

Dunphy earned a bachelor's and a master's degree from Lone Mountain (Calif.) College and a doctorate in English from the University of Tulsa (Okla). Before he came to LWC, he taught at Flaming Rainbow (Okla.) University. He was a member of the Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Columbia, Ky.

The Dunphy family requests expressions of sympathy to be made to the Dr. Mark Dunphy Memorial Pequod Scholarship to honor the legacy of his love and dedication to the students at Lindsey Wilson College.
