September, 1979



MARSHALL BROOKS, essayist and printer, is the editor of Nostoc, associate editor of the
Eugene O'Neill Newsletter, and, as his photographs in the current issue attest, a
seeker-out of the less touristy touches in landmarks and shrines. He has completed
an essay on Harry Kemp that will be included in the next issue of the Newsletter.

PETER EGRI, Professor of English at L. Eotvos University, Budapest, Hungary, is completing a book on Chekhov and O'Neill. His previous contributions to the Newsletter's pages have included a letter on O'Neill in Hungary (May 1977) and "O'Neill Productions in Hungary: A Chronological Record" (September 1978). His "The Iceman Cometh: An Epic Tragicomedy of Illusion and Reality" appeared in Hungarian Studies in English XI (1978), 95-105.

FREDERICK C. PACKARD, JR., former Professor of Speech at Harvard University and initiator of Harvard's acclaimed collection of recordings of poets reading their own works, became Professor of Public Speaking Emeritus in June 1965, and has since resided on Casco Bay in Maine, where he and his wife own shore property and a small island: "Paradise enow," they say! Professor Packard has tentatively agreed to reminisce in print about the first production of The Great God Brown, in which he both acted and served as assistant stage manager. A treat for a future issue.

EDWARD L. SHAUGHNESSY, Associate Professor of English at Butler University in Indianapolis, has published articles on Santayana in the Markham Review, Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, and Journal of American Studies. His essays, "Question and Answer in Hughie" and "'Hickey' Greets a Hoosier: a Reminiscence," both appeared in the September 1978 issue of the Newsletter.

FREDERICK C. WILKINS, Chairman of the Department of English at Suffolk University in Boston, is editor of the Eugene O'Neill Newsletter and a member of the pro tem Board of Directors of the Eugene O'Neill Society. He temporarily transferred his attention to another nation's dramatic bard during the summer of 1979, when he led a group of twenty-eight Suffolk students to "The England of Shakespeare's Kings."
