About the Author
Eugene Jones's career (MA, City College; Ph.M., Ph.D., theater, CUNY Graduate Center) has included stints as stage manager and director in professional theater, opera, and ballet, copy editor in the book publishing industry, and director in regional, community, and academic theater. Indians in life and on the stage have been an abiding interest, resulting in his first book, Where the Wind Blew Free (1967) and in this new history of Indian plays. He teaches theater and speech in South Carolina colleges and is researching the theater history of Charleston.
