Administrative History

The Stadler Center for Poetry was inaugurated on November 5, 1988 following the renovation and rededication of Bucknell Hall. The Center for Poetry, originally established in 1981 by Professor John Wheatcroft through a generous gift from Jack Stadler, class of 1940, and the late Ralynn Stadler, was renamed and housed in Bucknell Hall. The center is home to the Poet in Residence, Bucknell Seminar for Younger Poets, Stadler Semester for Younger Poets, Philip Roth Residence, and Sojka Visiting Poet programs, as well as West Branch, Bucknell's poetry magazine. In fall 2018 the name of the center changed to Stadler Center for Poetry and Literary Arts.
