The Rise of the Crafts Written by Gordon Wickstrom
Gordon Wickstrom is a native of Boulder, Colorado, a WWII navy vereran, and a graduate from the University of Colorado. He began his writing career in Wyoming - teching, making theatre, and fishing. Holding a PhD from Stanford University, he was a professor of drama and department head at Franklin and Marshall College in Pennsylvania and an occasional director and actor with the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. He retired back to Boulder in 1991. Gordon's observations on the various aspects of angling and the development of the arts as they relate to angling will hopefully establish themselves into a regular column in our journal.
