About Stephen Proper Gredler

BIOGRAPH Stephen Proper Gredler was born in Ithaca, New York in 1949. His father, Charles Rogers Gredler, joined the U.S. Army Airborne after attending Cornell University for two years. When he returned he took a degree in Slavic languages. He married Eloise Electa Proper from New Jersey, who had waited for him to return. When Stephen was three months old, and his older brother, two; the family of four moved to Lexington, Massachusetts and his father took a degree from Simmons College and started as a cataloger at Harvard University's Widener Library. His father became the Director of the Slavic Division--a silent architect of the Cold War, and built the library. Stephen Gredler attended private schools all of his life, with brief experiences with public schools when curriculum requirements prevailed, including Bartlett Elementary, Manter Hall, Kalamazoo College, and Northeastern University. He attended the Kaji Aso' Studio Poetry Workshops in Haiku, and the competitive Frost Place Workshop in 1992. He has written twelve books of poetry, a book of his photographs, and has started a textbook concerning the lives of 36 pure poets and influential writers. A tape recording of a Tufts University Radio Show is available at the Poet's Library in Washington D.C. He is a lifetime associate member of the New England Poetry Club and had an affiliation with the Copley Society of Art in Boston for fifteen years, leaving the Society after winning six juried shows and one award and Copley Artist status. His photography was featured in ZOOM Magazine in 1999. He showed at Bozart in Charlottesville in the mid nineties. Mr. Gredler's grandparents have social notoriety. His father's parents were ministers for the Unitarian Universalist Church, holding churches in East and West Bridgewater, Massachusetts. After their divorce, his grandfather, Frank Seraf Gredler, worked as a chaplain for the YMCA in New London, Connecticut and as a supply minister for the UUA in New England. Hazel Rugg Rogers Gredler took the Hingham and then the Yarmouth Port Church in Massachusetts. Eloise Gredler's father was the co-inventor of Snow-Proof leather dressing and sold his interest in the business to his partner in the early 1920's. He married Mina Shepard, who was employed as a researcher by Madame Curie in New York City. The sibling of Eloise, John Proper, was a successful veterinarian in Honeoye Falls, New York. The family is a direct descendant of the sporting artist, Lynn Bogue Hunt.
