"Stewart Principal Editor on Tribute to Barre Toelken"
SALISBURY, MD---Dr. Polly Stewart, professor of English in Salisbury State University’s Fulton School of Liberal Arts, is the principal editor of a new volume of essays, Worldviews and the American West: The Life of the Place Itself September 2000, Utah State University Press), a tribute to Barre Toelken, renowned folklorist, scholar and lecturer.
Toelken served as a major professor of Stewart and the other three editors, all of whom studied with him at the University of Oregon from the late 1960s through the late 1970s.
"The work is a carefully crafted array of studies by Toelken’s colleagues, which focus on a single subject area, the American West, through the lens provided by the concept ‘worldview’---one of the most important of Toelken’s contribution to theory," said Stewart.
