Richard Morrill (Everett Morrill Schreck)
In 1932, in his mid-30s, Everett M. Schreck was hired from Yale University to be the University of South Dakota's first full time theatre instructor. While a professor at Ohio State, Schreck authored the once widely used text Principles and Styles of Acting (1970), with contributions by junior colleagues William R. McGraw (also an Ohio professor) and Faber B. DeChaine (of the University of Oregon).
