Prof. Stuart McDougal retires

ANN ARBOR—Stuart Y. McDougal, professor of English at the University of Michigan, was given the emeritus title by the U-M Regents at their Oct. 15-16 meeting.

McGougal joined the U-M faculty in 1972. “His first book, ‘Ezra Pound and the Troubadour Tradition,’ established his reputation as a leading scholar of 20th century American poetry in a historical and comparative context,” the Regents said. “In time, his interest shifted more toward film and the relation between film and literature. He produced the influential textbook ‘Made Into Movies: From Literature to Film,’ which has gone through five printings so far. From 1981-97, he also directed the Program in Comparative Literature. Under his leadership, the program improved both its curricular coherence and its national visibility.”
