Richard August Johnson

1937 - 2006

Richard August Johnson (1937–2006) was a professor of English at Mount Holyoke College, and the author of books on composition and the poetry of W.H. Auden. He received his undergraduate education at Shimer College, where he enrolled before finishing high school due to Shimer's pioneering program of early entrance to college, completing his degree at Swarthmore in 1959. He completed his Ph.D. at Cornell University in 1965; in the same year, he began teaching at Mount Holyoke, where he remained for the duration of his career. (from Shimer College Wiki)
