Stevens, Thomas Wood


Stevens, Thomas Wood
(1880-1942)
   Born in Daysville, Illinois, Thomas Wood Stevens was an energetic participant in the burgeoning little theatre movement in Chicago in the 1910s, where he collaborated on masques and pageants with Kenneth Sawyer Goodman. In 1913, Stevens set up the Carnegie Institute of Technology's drama program, the first degree-granting school of theatre arts. Following Goodman's untimely death in 1918, Stevens headed the Goodman Theatre and School established by Goodman's wealthy parents in 1925. Stevens continued in this position until 1930 when he returned to Carnegie, spending most of his remaining career there. Stevens's only Broadway work, as director of James Bridie's The Anatomist (1932), failed.
