As a faculty member in the Humanities Department at Lesley University and chairperson of the Shakespeare Oxford Fellowship Oxfordian of the Year Selection Committee, I truly appreciate the recognition of Dr. Waugaman’s achievements by your publication. Rick is immensely modest and has done so much to advance our understanding of who Shakespeare was and how we relate to the author and his works. Bravo to the writer Michael Blanding for crafting a piece that tells his story with facts and flair!
