"The American Shakespeare Center lost a good friend yesterday. Frank Southerington, Professor of English at Mary Baldwin College from 1968 until his retirement in 2007, was the first director of the MLitt/MFA program in Shakespeare and Performance.
From the beginning, Frank embraced this improbable endeavor between a small liberal arts college and an upstart Shakespeare company. The program, the only one of its kind, owes much of its early success to Frank’s graciousness and support. His love of theatre in general and of Shakespeare in particular, together with his ready wit and warmth, made Rose Terrace a second home to the graduate students who came to Staunton to work and study at the Blackfriars and be part of the remarkable Shakespeare community growing around it.
We will miss him dearly."
