Stork, Charles Wharton (1881-1971)
Charles Wharton Stork (1881-1971) was a Philadelphia born poet and dramatist educated at Haverford College (A.B., 1902), Harvard (M.A., 1903) and the University of Pennsylvania (Ph.D., 1905). From 1903-1916 he taught in the English department at the University of Pennsylvania. For the next twenty years Wharton, as he was called, devoted his time to private literary endeavors, translating and editing verse and writing poetry, plays, critical essays, book reviews and fiction, in addition to lecturing and poetry reading. From 1935-1951 he taught again, this time at Harcum Junior College in Bryn Mawr, and continued writing and publishing until the 1960's. He served on the Athenaeum Board of Directors from 1919-1968.
