Rodefer Olio 1963

From Neale Adams:  Steve Rodefer, a poet and teacher, died in Paris.

Steve had a very full career. He taught in many colleges and universities, published several books of poems, reviews and other pieces, and fathered four sons. At Amherst he played tennis, soccer, and squash, and majored in English. It is sad to hear of Steve's death, and also that the college and most of us apparently lost track of him.

Steve's accomplished life and career can be viewed on his own personal website, which now is copyrighted by the Estate of Stephen Rodefer.  The website (www.stephenrodefer.com) has valuable information about his art, his poetry, and his impressive bio/resume (altho he would probably not have liked that term).
