RIP Oscar Brockett (1923-2010)

By Byrne Harrison

If you studied theatre history in college, chances are you used Oscar Brockett's "History of the Theatre" as your textbook (I have three different editions on my shelf, one from my undergrad studies and two from grad school - I still refer to them from time to time).

Brockett passed away today at the age of 87 after suffering a stroke.
