Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Carter Curtis Revard (born March 25, 1931) is an American poet, writer and scholar. He is part Osage on his father's side. He is also known by his Osage name, Nom-Peh-Wah-The (Nompehwahthe) given to him in 1952 by his grandmother, Mrs. Josephine Jump. Revard was born in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, an Osage Indian Agency town. His early education on the Osage reservation was in a single room with all the other grades of his school. In this environment, schoolwork was coupled with farming and other odd jobs, including greyhound training, but Revard still credits his teachers at the time with inspiring his interest in literature and science. A scholarship won on the back of a radio quiz enabled him to earn a BA at the University of Tulsa, and there he prospered well enough to gain a Rhodes Scholarship that enabled him to study at Oxford University, earning a BA there as well. A PhD at Yale University followed in 1959.
