Robert Bechtold Heilman was born in Philadelphia on July 18, 1906, to Edgar James Heilman, a Lutheran minister, and Mary Alice Bechtold Heilman. He grew up in Elizabethville and Easton, Pennsylvania, and attended Easton High School and Lafayette University. Even at an early age, Heilman was a gifted scholar, writer, and lecturer, giving both the salutatory speech at his high school commencement and the valedictory speech upon reception of his bachelor's degree in English in 1927. In 1977 he spent a year as the Arnold Professor at Whitman College. Heilman engaged in scholarly research and writing throughout his administrative career and after his retirement. He served on the editorial boards of numerous publications, including Poetry Northwest, Critical Quarterly, Shakespeare Studies, The Sewanee Review, College English, Studies in the Novel, and Mississippi Studies in English. Heilman's academic interests included 18th- and 19th-century English and American literature and William Shakespeare. He was also a lifelong sports fan and occasionally wrote about football and baseball. Heilman produced ten volumes of critical works and essays on topics including Shakespeare, dramatic forms, fiction, and the American South. Robert Heilman continued to write reviews and essays and to give lectures and speeches after his retirement. He also maintained active correspondence with family and colleagues. A collection of his essays titled The Professor and the Profession was published by the University of Missouri Press in 1999. Robert Heilman died in 2004. We have more of his personal collection available for any interested parties. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of this book benefit Penrose Memorial Library at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, Earthlight Books (across the street from the college), and the local Walla Walla economy!
