Dr. N. Bryllion Fagin Page 2 Dr. Arthur R. Borden Jr., chairman of the Humanities Division at College, which is offering the lecture series, said that Professor Fagin is con-sidered an authority on modern drama and his experience over many years in teach-ing and producing drama has permitted him to watch and study the development of the modern drama as exemplified by Strindberg Brecht and Albee. "New College brings this series to the community with the idea that it will stimulate thinking in another field of the arts in addition to painting and r.msic," said Dr. Borden, pointing to the successful Fine Arts Institute and Summer Music Festival already being sponsored by the college. "Modern drama also comes closer to touching modern life than either music or drama," said Dr. Borden, "for it deals directly and at length con-temporary life, and yet it probably is less understood than pop art." Dr. Borden said that all registrants for the course would be reading lists and that the Ne,., College bookstore would attempt to stock all plays on the list so that they may be available for registrants. -30-
