Biographical Note

Stark Young was born in Como, Mississippi, on October 11, 1881, the son of a physician in a family which traced its ancestry in the United States back to 1795. Young received his Bachelor's degree from the University of Mississippi in 1901 and his Master's degree in English from Columbia University in 1902. Young taught at the University of Mississippi in 1905-1907, and then moved to the University of Texas at Austin. There he established the Texas Review and became involved with theater. In 1915, he moved to Amherst College, where he taught English until 1921. He resigned to pursue other interests and moved to New York City, New York. In New York, he was appointed as an editor of Theater Arts Magazine and as drama critic for  The New Republic. Young worked at  The New Republic until his retirement in 1947.
