Hyatt Howe Waggoner

Hyatt Howe Waggoner (born Pleasant Valley, New York, November 19, 1913; died October 13, 1988, in Hanover, New Hampshire) was an English professor. He is today best known for his work on Nathaniel Hawthorne, especially ''Hawthorne's Selected Tales and Sketches'' (1950), ''Hawthorne: A Critical Study'' (1956) and ''The Presence of Hawthorne'' (1979), and in 1978 played a pivotal role in the authentication of the novelist's "lost notebook". In the year of Waggoner's death, he was honoured with the House of Seven Gables Hawthorne Award. He did not, however, confine his output to one author: "I've moved around the field", he declared, "at the risk of being superficial." Among the other literary figures who incurred his attention were Ralph Waldo Emerson, Robert Frost, Walt Whitman and William Faulkner. Provided by Wikipedia
