 MWP: Stark Young (1881-1963)
Young was, of course, fortunate that he lived at a time when the American theatre was enjoying its finest moments both in terms of plays and in terms of performers, directors, and scene designers.
What Young endeavors to define in these loosely connected stories are the values of family life, the virtues that come “always of the heart,” and the wisdom to be gained from contact with the land.
Young presented the contrast between life in the metropolitan city and that of a small Mississippi town, the opposition between the life of a creative artist in the city and the student in the academic ivory tower of the Southern university, and the clash of values represented by industrialism and agrarianism.

 New attack on Brad Vice is merely poor journalism by Jason Sanford
However, it appears that Robert Clark Young missed out on this year's turkey and happiness infusion, as evidenced by his new attack-dog article on Brad Vice’s supposed plagiarism (an issue I debunked weeks ago).
As Young says in the article, “Plagiarism tends to be a first-draft offense; it is now possible to trace Vice's plagiarism from its genesis in his original documents.” But despite this claim by Young, he fails to quote accurately from the original document.
While Young's use of creative excerpts from Vice's dissertation is bad enough, a worse sin is that he fails to mention anything that might support Vice's assertion (and the belief of others) that what Vice did was not plagiarism.

Clark was born the second child of Suzanne Brown in Oakville, Ontario, and in 1988 Suzanne relocated her and her two sons to Boca Raton, Florida.
