William Vaughn Moody, whose play "The Faith Healer" is to be produced in Sanders Theatre on January 24 by Mr. Henry Miller and his professional company, graduated from Harvard in the class of 1893. While in College he was an editor of the Monthly and at the graduation of his class was class poet. After taking his A.M. degree in 1894, he went to the University of Chicago as an instructor in English. Since then he has been made a professor in the same department.
His first dramatic production was "The Great Divide," which was played, by Mr. Miller in New York for two years. The recent publication of Mr. Moody's "The Faith Healer" has again set people commenting, criticising, and guessing. In both plays we face drama not merely entertaining or amusing, but stimulative of thought about certain phases of American life,--stimulating because conceived in thought and developed by close thinking. His is the power to present striking and suggestive ideas by dramatic situations, with a characterization delicate or vigorous as he pleases, in a phrasing of a literary quality unusual on our stage.
