Tony J. Stafford
I received my Bachelor's of Arts from Wake Forest University with a major in Philosophy and minors in English Literature and Latin, my MA from Texas Western College (now UTEP), and my PhD from Louisiana State University. I returned to Texas Western in 1964. I have served as chair of the department on four separate occasions, the most recent being 1997-2003. My academic specialization is dramatic literature, and, in addition to publishing Shakespeare in the Southwest: Some New Directions, I have published numerous articles on Shakespeare and other English Renaissance playwrights, such as Middleton and Shirley, as well as a number of articles on George Bernard Shaw and have completed a book-length manuscript on Shaw. I have also published on American dramatists such as Mamet, Rabe, Albee, McCullers, and others and have made innumerable conference presentations on dramatic literature. I have also written some dozen plays which have been produced in major cities across the country and have also published a novel, The Grace of a Summer's Day. I teach courses in Shakespeare, American drama, modern British drama, British literature, and have taught graduate courses in those subjects as well as Dramatic Comedy.
