MICHAEL HINDEN, Associate Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is chairman of the Publications Committee of the Eugene O'Neill Society. His previous appearances in the Newsletter have included essays on The Hairy Ape (January 1978, pp. 2-4), Richard Middleton (January 1979, pp. 13-16), and The Emperor Jones (January 1980, pp. 2-4).

DEBORAH KELLAR, a member of the Membership Committee of the Eugene O'Neill Society, is spending the summer as Faculty Costume Designer for a four-show season at Central Washington University in Ellensburg. The recipient of an M.A. in Directing from the University of California at Santa Barbara, she served as guest artistic director at Centralia College in Washington during academic year 1979-1980, when she directed and designed the costumes for the production of A Touch of the Poet that she discusses in this issue.

PATRICK J. NOLAN, Professor of English at Villanova University, has "been teaching O'Neill in seminar for better than twelve years and found the state of scholarship somewhat spotty." The essay in this issue points out "one spot I believe should be filled." A playwright, Professor Nolan won an Emmy award for the ABC Movie of the Week, Jericho Mile.
