Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Pierce Baker (born 1866; died 1935) was an American educator in the field of drama. Baker graduated in the Harvard University class of 1887, and taught in the English Department at Harvard from 1888 until 1924. He started his "47 workshop" class in playwrighting in 1905. He was instrumental in creating the Harvard Theatre Collection at Harvard University Library. In 1908 he began the Harvard Dramatic Club, acting as its sponsor, and in 1912 he founded Workshop 47 to provide a forum for the performance of plays developed within his English 47 class. Unable to persuade Harvard to offer a degree in playwrighting, he moved to Yale University in 1925, where he helped found the Yale School of Drama. He remained there until his retirement in 1933.show more
