LINDA BEN-ZVI is Associate Professor of English at Colorado State University. Her essay, "Exiles, The Great God Brown, and the Specter of Nietzsche" (Modern Drama, September, 1981, pp. 251-269), was summarized in the Winter 1981 issue of the Newsletter, and her "Susan Glaspell and Eugene O'Neill" was featured in the "O'Neill's Women" issue (Summer-Fall 1982).

MARSHALL BROOKS, editor of Nostoc, is associate editor, art director and layout honcho of the Newsletter. His poster for the 1984 O'Neill conference, with its boy-man, sea-horizon, seagull-fish and Ikala allusions, sums up much of the era to be covered, delights the editor, and will be available, in a silkscreen reproduction, as a purchasable souvenir of the conference.

THOMAS F. CONNOLLY, a 1983 graduate of Suffolk University, will begin graduate work in English at Boston University next fall while continuing his recent activities as coordinator-planner for the 1984 conference. No stranger to boards and buskin, Mr. Connolly capped his undergraduate career with back-to-back performances, this spring, as the Duke in the musical Two Gentlemen of Verona and as Pentheus in Euripides' The Bacchae.

ALVIN J. GORDON is a poet, writer, film maker and producer, and most recently founder of the Educational Goals Study Group in Sonoma, CA. The editor is grateful to Professor Michael Hinden, who suggested that Mr. Gordon set down the recollections that appear in this issue.

WILLIAM L. SIPPLE teaches at Waynesburg College. He delivered the paper in this issue at the special session on "Eugene O'Neill and Film," directed by Professor Eugene K. Hanson, at the 1983 MLA convention in Los Angeles.

SUSAN TUCK, of Indiana University, is a regular contributor to the Newsletter's pages, her last appearance being a two-part essay on "O'Neill and Frank Wedekind" in the Spring and Summer-Fall 1982 issues. Her Eugene O'Neill's Critics: Voices from Abroad, co-edited with Horst Frenz, will be published by the Southern Illinois University Press this fall.

FREDERICK C. WILKINS is weaving an ornate welcome mat o'er which he hopes to greet you all in Boston next March.
